Counseling & Therapy for Highly Sensitive People and Anxious Attachment in Rochester, NY
Highly sensitive hearts, introverts, deep feelers, the socially anxious, and those with emotionally intense personalities are welcome here. You feel ALL the feels. All the time. Sometimes your emotions seem so powerful that you feel out of control or that it is unbearable. You form strong attachments to people, pets, places, and things but struggle with stability and security in your relationships. You are fed up with being told that you are ‘too emotional’, ‘too needy’, ‘too clingy’, or ‘too sensitive’. Maybe you use alcohol, drugs, food, or suicidal thoughts to cope with your overwhelming emotions.
Your emotionally sensitive nature is not something to be fixed or cured but to be accepted, appreciated and mastered. I am here to help you connect with your strengths, find compassion for your inner critic and difficult childhood, communicate more effectively, experience secure and satisfying relationships, and learn how to calm your inner emotional storm.
I would be honored to accompany you on your journey towards healing, growth, and change. To see if we would be a good fit, I invite you to contact me for a free phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
