Are you bright, gifted, or intellectually curious? Or, do others consider you so, even if you don't? Do you resonate with the concept of the highly sensitive person (HSP) and feel things deeply? Have you gotten feedback that you are "too" intense, sensitive, emotional from others in your life? Do you feel like others cannot see you? If these questions resonate with you, I can help, whether your goals are exploring your gifts and finding ways to realize them in this world, coping with keenly felt sense of injustice, learning how to navigate in a world built for "normal," or finding ways to manage multiple tasks with ADHD.
I have 12 years of experience in counseling gifted and 2E individuals of all ages and many additional years of personal experience with this population. My interdisciplinary background has left me grounded in developmental, ecological, and neurobiological theories. I draw on these, as well as coaching & psychoeducation, to help clients reach their goals,
Feeling unseen is traumatic, in and of itself. Years of feeling unseen may have left you hesitant to reach out, yet finding someone who can see the many of facets of your self is an important first step in healing and growing. It would be my honor to hear your story.
