Dr. Elaine Aron's groundbreaking research on HSPs (Highly Sensitive Persons) helps us understand why this 15-20% of the population may feel like they are fundamentally different from most people they know.


As with any personality trait, sensory-processing sensitivity involves both light and shadow.  HSPs often feel lonely and frustrated by having a keen level of awareness and empathy beyond what is culturally considered "normal."  It can be helpful, encouraging, even inspiring to connect with other people who share this kind of highly-attuned temperament.


Therapy groups can be incredibly helpful by giving us a chance to observe our interactions with and reactions to others, experiment with different ways of relating in the moment, and increase our freedom and authenticity -- all in a safe space for the kind of real-time honest, respectful communication that rarely occurs in everyday life.


Previous groups have been a beautiful experience, with participants frequently commenting, "This is the first time I've been around other people who are all like me!"  Each session Dr. Laura gives a brief didactic piece about HSP and then opens the group to sharing and interpersonal process.

Because this is a small group (5-6), participants must commit to attending all four sessions.
  The HSP Group is designed to benefit both therapists and non-therapists who identify as having Highly Sensitive Personality.
