"Sensitivity" is a GENETIC trait affecting 1in 5 people!
You may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) if...
You are a deep thinker or feeler – someone who pauses to reflect before speaking, acting, or making decisions in order to make the best choice.
You feel stressed, anxious, or afraid of failure, especially during major life transitions or moments when you must perform under pressure.
You avoid environments and activities that are overstimulating for you.
You have big feelings (both positive and negative) that can be difficult to regulate, and others believe you are overreacting.
You are sensitive to subtleties – light, noise, smells, flavors, textures, hormones, allergies, pain, drugs, art, healing, nature, or extrasensory perceptions.
You know you are different – perhaps unable to sustain a "normal" lifestyle without burning out– and you sometimes fear something is wrong with you.
You have been this way your WHOLE LIFE – in school, at work, and in your important relationships.
HSPs suffer in insensitive times; however...
In supportive environments, like therapy, HSPs are MORE resilient than others!

STRESS & TRAUMA
Lifestyle & Boundaries
Talking about your challenges, goals, thoughts, feelings, and insights with someone who wants to understand and encourage you can be a very powerful thing; especially for sensitive people, who thrive in supportive environments. There are many forms of talk therapy. This approach is person-centered, attachment-based, mindfulness-based, and culturally-sensitive.
This modality includes breath work, body awareness, movement, and sometimes touch. The field was established in the 1930s. It is evidence-based, neuroscience-approved, and trauma-informed. Sensitive people benefit from this approach because they have sensitive nervous systems and strong awareness of the mind-body connection.
Sensitive people sense subtleties in their environment, and no therapeutic approach is more subtle than energy healing. When combined with psychotherapy, this modality helps prevent overwhelm, heightens emotional intelligence and intuition, improves self-esteem, clarifies boundaries between self and other, and helps solidify deep and lasting change.
Because sensitive people deserve sensitive therapy
Anneva is wise beyond her years, having heightened ability to see and deep knowing. Her quiet strength and her loving, supportive, and openly curious presence help clients feel safe to talk about anything and explore their deepest feelings.
