Healing + Empowerment for the Sensitive Soul
An 8-week Therapy Group Intensive for Sensitives, Empaths, and Deep Feelers
Is this you…?
- You’ve always felt different. You notice things others don’t catch. You’re creative, empathic, and highly observant.
- You avoid conflict at all costs. You were raised to be ‘nice’ and put others’ needs before your own. It leaves you feeling resentful, angry, or hopeless.
- Others criticize you for being “too emotional” or “too much”. They don’t understand how painful it is to feel overwhelmed and overstimulated. You wish you could learn to let their words roll off your back.
- Your inner world and imagination is complex and rich. You want to know others who feel as deeply as you do.
- You get frustrated when there is too much on your plate. You have a hard time juggling multiple commitments without getting frazzled.
- You have a deep need for purpose, novelty, connection, and excitement. You also need lots of downtime and solitude. It’s an inner war – You don’t know how to balance the needs of both sides of you and end up feeling bored, lonely, or burned out.
This group was created for you.
