You’ve always felt different. You notice things others don’t.  You’re creative, intuitive, and observant.

You cry easily.   Not just when you’re sad, but when life feels too precious and exquisite for words.

You know your job is slowly crushing your soul.  On the outside, it seems like you love your job and fit in with your co-workers.  Yet, on the inside, you feel like no one really gets you.  You need out but you’re afraid that finding a new job will just repeat the cycle.

Your past has been filled with confusing, painful, or even toxic relationships.  You’re ready for a healthy, committed relationship–you’re just not sure how to stop being haunted by the past.  You’re afraid of showing too much of yourself to others. Experience has taught you that vulnerability will only be used against you.

You’ve grown up with the messages that who you are, what you do, or who you love is not okay.  You only feel safe when you’re alone, with your pets, in nature, or immersed in your own imagination.

It’s doesn’t have to be this way.

Imagine you woke up and felt deeply connected with yourself and the world around you. You have a community, friends, and a romantic partner that honors– and even celebrates–your sensitive, independent and quirky nature.

Heading to work is a joy, not a stressor.  You enjoy a slow morning, dress in comfortable clothes, and then head to a job that fulfills you. (Or maybe you find yourself working from home!)

You have a life and a schedule that suits your sensitivity, as opposed to fighting against it. You end the day with energy to spare for your loved ones, hobbies, and yourself.

Finally, relationships start to feel safe.  You are learning to trust yourself, believe in your worth, and allowing the past to be healed.

Being sensitive doesn’t mean you have to suffer.arianna-sarah-lindsay-photography-2

My name is Arianna Smith.  (pronouns: she/her/hers).  

I guide and encourage Highly Sensitive People, as they find the skills and strength to live the life they have wanted all along.

I work with queer, trans, and non-binary folx who have experienced childhood abuse or intimate partner violence and are ready for healing.

I am with you as we explore the dark places, usher in changes, and celebrate the small victories.

My mission is to uncover what you knew all along…

Specialties

When you enter my practice, I want you to know this is a place where you can be truly seen and accepted for who you are.

I will support you in becoming the best version of yourself, while also honoring that who you are, in this exact moment, is perfect.

I welcome working with folks from all walks of life and backgrounds, with a specialty on the following populations:

Highly Sensitive People (HSPs)

  • Highly Sensitive People make up about 15-20% of the general population and possess a unique sensory processing trait that allows them to pick up more on subtleties in the environment.  As such, they may become overwhelmed very easily, absorb other people’s emotions, or have difficulty navigating mainstream culture’s expectations.  It’s important to work with a therapist who is knowledgeable about this trait and can provide a strengths-based approach as opposed to pathologizing one’s inherent sensitivity.  I have undergone specific training to be listed on the hsperson.com website as an HSP-Knowledgable Therapist. My blog offers countless articles around how to craft your ideal life as a Highly Sensitive Person.

Members of the LGBTQ Community 

  • Those within the LGBTQ community often face discrimination and prejudice.  Many have experienced domestic violence or abuse that goes unrecognized or unacknowledged in a heteronormative society.  Oppressive attitudes or micro-aggressions from others can be internalized into low self-esteem, feelings of alienation or shame. Having a trusted, competent, and affirming therapist can help you take the steps needed to feel a sense of safety, healing, and belonging.
  • I have specialized training and experience in working with survivors of domestic violence/intimate partner violence within the LGBTQ community.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

  • I offer EMDR to clients who may need help getting past traumatic events or feel ‘stuck’ in therapy or in thier way of coping.  EMDR is a scientifically-proven type of psychotherapy that is targeted to help people heal from emotional distress, trauma, and other difficult life events.  It’s been shown to help with a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, panic attacks etc.  EMDR is based on the belief that the mind is geared towards healing when certain ‘blocks’ in processing are removed.  Therapists who provide this modality are required to undergo extensive training and credentialing.

Domestic Violence & Intimate Partner Violence

  • Survivors of violence and abuse (assault, domestic violence, trafficking, stalking, etc) face particular challenges in our culture and society to access services, achieve justice, and receive healing.  Despite the extraordinary strength and wisdom that survivors possess, they may feel alienated, alone, or misunderstood. We live in a culture that often blames the survivors for the violence or abuse they have experienced, making the healing process especially difficult.  I have specialized training and experience in working with survivors of domestic violence/intimate partner violence, including serving survivors in the LGBTQIA+ community.
