21 Signs That You Are Indeed A Highly Sensitive Person
Have you ever been told you’re too sensitive?
To just get over it?
Have you ever been out to eat at a restaurant with your friends and suddenly felt super overwhelmed? Rationally, you were having fun. But suddenly, the 32 TVs blaring, the fluorescent lights, the drink you’re sipping, the collective noise all hit you at once and you HAD to get out of there.

So, what now? Do you recognize yourself as a highly sensitive person (HSP)? Do you see it in someone you love like your child, your partner or your best friend?

I've developed a course that will help you Find Your Magic as a Highly Sensitive Person! I've also created workbooks for HSPs with anxiety and am a HSP coach.
I’ll teach you:
