My goals are simple.

Is your head swirling with

to-do lists

negative self talk

fear of judgments

not knowing where to start

 

Are you stuck but know you have to get started just

to get ahead of it?

Do you find yourself procrastinating and not able to get going which then makes you feel guilty or lazy which then turns into an ongoing self-defeating circle?

 

Is the overwhelm enough to make you want to crawl back

in bed, or not even get out of bed?

I help people create a life so awesome

that sleeping in feels

like a crime!

I thrive on your success

Why can't I keep up?

As a former overachiever, that's what I used to ask when I compared myself to non-HSPs

Once I realized how much different HSPs take in their environment and the world around them,

I began to see that what energizes and revitalizes the non-highly sensitive person

actually depletes the highly sensitive and easily overstimulated person.  

My Story

I am almost embarrassed to admit this, but I didn't really know about highly sensitive people (HSPs) until I stumbled on it by accident.  

It was about twelve years ago and I was working as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (aka psychotherapist) in a community mental health facility. 

 

I had a client tell me that from a very young age, they would cry when they heard magnificent music or saw beautiful artwork and asked if I knew why that might be. 

After our session, I Googled "sensitive to music and art" and the term Highly Sensitive Person populated the page. 

 

I went down the internet rabbit hole and within an hour had ordered Dr. Elaine Aron's book The Highly Sensitive Person.

I devoured the book in a weekend and took her 27-question "Are You Highly Sensitive" self-testI scored a 26 out of 27! 

From then on, I have done endless research on the topic and even got to meet Dr. Aron in person! 

The more I learned about myself and my fellow HSPs, the more I realized we really thrived when we interacted with other HSPs.  

 

It felt amazing to feel seen, heard, and understood. Validation was so powerful.

 

I also quickly came to appreciate just how damaging it could be when working with a therapist or coach who didn't get the HSP trait. 

 

I saw the harm that could come from professionals telling HSPs that they "just shouldn't let it bother you" or informing HSPs that what they are upset about "really isn't that big of a deal."  

This is what led me to work exclusively with highly sensitive people, at first in the therapy field and later into the  life coaching sector.  AND I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT.

Coaching Kind Words

Choosing to reach out to Patti was one of the best decisions I could have ever made to better myself and embark on my own personal  journey. Throughout our time working together, Patti's approachable and friendly temperament paired with her many years of expertise working with HSPs made it that much easier for me to not only feel comfortable opening up from the very beginning, but to also explore the more uncomfortable or difficult areas that I've since been able to work through with her ongoing support and guidance.

 

Patti's sessions were a safe space for me to go within and address any unresolved issues head-on without fear of judgement or lacking results. Since making this wonderful investment in myself, I see improvement in myself and my interactions with others and am very thankful to have stumbled upon her website. That said, any client would be incredibly fortunate to work with someone so caring, so understanding, passionate, and as knowledgeable as Patti.
