Mentoring and Coaching

My work is to help sensitive and creative souls, who have either lost or not yet found the meaning and fulfillment they seek, reconnect with their inner truth and repower to move forward from a foundation of authenticity.


This page is in constant development as I continue to learn and grow. I hope you find the resources here to be helpful to you on your journey. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Sensory Processing Sensitivity and the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)

Those of us with sensory processing sensitivity, also known as Highly Sensitive People are experiencing the world in profoundly meaningful ways, but we often walk through life feeling “different,” like we “don’t fit in,” even worrying that something is “wrong with us.” Research shows that this genetic trait exists in many different species of animals (more than 100), which suggests that the trait exists for a reason. Whether or not we “fit in” conventionally, we certainly belong, and we have very important gifts to share.

There are now wonderful resources for us to learn about this trait and grow into the compassionate power we need to share our gifts out into the world.


I learned about the trait of high sensitivity through the work of Elaine Aron, Ph.D. and, specifically, by reading her book, The Highly Sensitive Person. Dr. Aron’s website, The Highly Sensitive Person, contains many resources, along with a quiz you can take to assess your sensitivity level.

Some of my favorite resources  for HSPs are offered by Julie Bjelland, LMFT and founder of the Sensitive Empowerment Community.


Julie offers a free sensitivity quiz along with many in-depth courses to help HSPs thrive. I love Julie’s HSP Brain Training course, and the HSP Toolbox includes so many useful strategies. She also offers free Masterclasses, which can lead to very generous discounts on the full courses, for those who choose to learn more.


Julie’s main mission is to help highly sensitive people thrive in the world, so she offers plenty of free resources and frequent discounts. I recommend her HSP Podcast, which is ranked top 5% most shared and most followed podcast globally in 169 countries.


Below are just a few of the resources Julie offers:
