Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Skilled therapist working with highly sensitive people/empaths, high functioning anxiety and/or depression
Are you someone with high functioning anxiety/depression, ADD/ADHD? Maybe that pesky inner critic won't be quiet, or you hyperfocus on mistakes. Trouble setting boundaries or saying no, asking for help? Do you get easily overwhelmed by others' emotions or your environment? Maybe people say you are too sensitive. You can learn to recognize and label these patterns with time, practice, and kindness to yourself.
As an empath myself, I can relate to much of this. My clinical background is in CBT, Mindfulness, Tapping, Self Compassion, and the Enneagram. I enjoy working with other highly sensitive people/empaths, people in the helping fields, people who identify as having high functioning anxiety and/or depression and ADD/ADHD.
Asking for help can be hard, and vulnerable. I believe the therapeutic relationship should come from a place of curiosity, empathy, and maybe a little humor thrown in. I hope to provide a space where you can give voice to the inner dialogue while also building on the resources and skills you already have to be able to sit with and/or challenge that voice.
