Should I Tell Others That I’m a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)?
Arianna Smith, LPC, EMDR
Arianna talks about the grief and joy she felt when she learned she was an HSP (she wanted to be told she wasn’t one). She talks about being strategic about her day and using pacing in order to honor her HS needs. We talk about using food/substances to self-soothe and to manage being sensitive. Arianna talks about her hacks for travel as well as having snacks on hand, so she doesn’t get hangry. We explore if we feel pain (sadness) as a result of having HS gifts, but not being able to express those gifts.
Arianna Smith, LPC (she/her) is a therapist and business coach for Highly Sensitive People. Raised in rural Alaska, Arianna learned early on the beauty and challenges of being highly sensitive. Today, she guides HSPs to release the stigma of being sensitive to craft a vibrant, soulful life and business. Based in Denver, Colorado, she provides trauma-informed psychotherapy to HSPs and the LGBTQ community, while offering business coaching and writing services to sensitive entrepreneurs across the globe. Outside of the office, she can be found exploring trails with her puppy or searching for the perfect Earl Grey blend.
Patricia knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, truthteller and blacksheep. Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation and compassion. She created the podcast Unapologetically Sensitive to help other HSPs know that they aren’t alone, and that being an HSP has amazing gifts, and some challenges. Patricia works online globally working individually with people, and she teaches Online Courses for HSPs that focus on self-care, self-compassion, boundaries, perfectionism, mindfulness, and creating a lifestyle that honors us
