Treatment for Highly Sensitive People in Miami
What is a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)?
Some people find environmental stimulation, like bright lights, strong smells, and loud noises, completely overwhelm their senses. This often appears to friends and family members as being “too sensitive”.
These people often have perfectionist tendencies as well, and tend to engage in people-pleasing behaviors and persistent self-criticism.
If these qualities ring a bell, you may be a “Highly Sensitive Person”, or HSP. HSPs are extra-sensitive to all kinds of stimuli, including social, physical, and emotional stimuli. Elaine Aron refers to this condition as “Sensory Processing Sensitivity”, or SPS.

Being an HSP is a mixed bag of gifts and challenges. On the bright side, you might experience the joys of music and food and art more intensely; sadly, this can also be true of sadness, depression, anxiety, and emotional and physical pain.
Left unaddressed, these feelings can overwhelm you and worsen already existing problems, such as relationship problems, family of origin issues, trauma, and seemingly endless misunderstandings and dismissals by those close to you.
As a result, you end up lacking self-confidence, feeling hopeless, or suffering from chronic depression, anxiety, or addiction.
