Gatherings for HSP Therapists

As an HSP therapist, we tend to keep to ourselves. We don’t gravitate to large networking events. We aren’t thrilled about cold emailing other professionals (no matter how cool they seem).

Since we devote so much energy to our work with clients, we are extra mindful to protect our time and energy outside of the therapy office.

Yet…

We crave connection.  Community.  Exchanging ideas.  Sharing successes and challenges in this field.

You dream of showing up to a networking-type event – and everyone instantly understands when you say:

  • “I almost didn’t come.”
  • “I am so overwhelmed, but I knew I needed to be here.”
  • “I’d love to learn more about you – but like actually – YOU, not just your business.”

As an HSP, you are more likely to connect with someone in a small, low-pressure setting that doesn’t feel ‘salesy’.

Introducing mellow, non-networky gatherings for HSP therapists in the greater Denver area.

During an HSP therapist gathering, you might enjoy:

  • Taking off your “therapist hat” and just being you.
  • Skipping the small talk and diving right into the heart of a topic.
  • Comparing experiences with other HSP therapists on how they make life and career work for them as a sensitive being.
  • Browsing written resources and books on HSPs (I’ll have stuff handy.)
  • Learning the basic traits about HSPs, including if you might be a High-Sensation-Seeking HSP (If so, you’re a rare breed!)
  • Taking self-tests to understand more about HSPs.

Why am I doing this?

A few reasons:

As an HSP therapist, I’ve been wanting something like this for a while.  I’m like you – I prefer to meet with colleagues one on one or in small settings.  Huge networking events just aren’t my thing.  I’ll enjoy myself, but feel like I have an HSP-hangover for days afterward.

In my side hustle, I work with HSP therapists – so I know for a fact that in-person community is needed for us.

Additionally, I work with HSPs in my private practice. So I prefer to save the general HSP meetup spaces for my clients.

So, when it comes down to it – there’s no reason I wouldn’t do this.

Alright, I’m intrigued.  Give me the details:

There will be three gatherings throughout the summer spread throughout Denver.

  • Littleton (June) – Wed, June 26th – 9:00am – 10:30am
    • iN-TEA – 2440 W Main St, Littleton
  • Wheat Ridge (July) – Wed, July 24th – 9:00am – 10:30am
    • Bardos Coffee House – 6150 W 38th Ave – Wheat Ridge
      • Please note Bardos has TWO locations.
  • Arvada (August) – Wed, August 7th, 9:00am – 10:30am
    • Red Silo Coffee Roasters – 6590 Holman St, Arvada

Can I just drop in whenever?

Yes!  Just show up when it works for you and leave when you need to.  I’ll be there the entire time (and probably after, if I’m honest).  Even if you just pop in for 15 minutes, we will all be glad you came.

Is there a cost?

Nope.  This is 100% free for you.

Most places will ask that you purchase a beverage to support us being in their space.  So, treat yourself to a fancy tea or turmeric latte while you’re here.   

Is this a networking event?

This event is NOT focused on networking for the sake of networking. There will be no required 3-min elevator speech from each participant. No obligatory business card swapping (unless you want to).  No sales pitches.

The intention of this gathering is to not have it feel network-y.  But, it’s inevitable that we will be talking about our careers, practices, side hustles, and passions. That is our shared experience.

You will inevitably meet some other amazing therapists who might want to support your professional goals in some capacity. And you might even make some potential friends.

I think I’m an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person), but I’m not sure, can I still come?

Yes! This could actually be an ideal setting for you to learn more about HSPs and if this fit you.

How do I sign up?

In true HSP-supportiveness, there are no hard rules around RSVPs.

It would be great if you could give me a heads up as I will be paying to reserve the spaces.  However, if you just show up – that’s fine, too!

An RSVP helps me keep you in the loop of any last minute changes.

To RSVP – two options

1) Email me:  arianna@quietmooncounseling.com

2) RSVP to the corresponding event on my FB page:

I can’t make these times work, but I need other HSP therapists in my life! What should I do?

I’m offering three gatherings this summer across the Metro area in hopes that at least one will work for you.

If you can’t do any of them, please email me and I’ll make sure that you stay informed of anything down the road.

You can also consider hosting your own HSP therapist meet up! I’d be happy to spread the word.

It goes without saying – but I am ALWAYS down for 1:1 coffee dates with HSP therapists. So, don’t be shy to reach out to me as well.
