Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I help HSP moms embrace their sensitivity so they can reduce overwhelm, improve self-care, and feel more ease & joy. It's time to stop showing up for everyone but yourself. You're worthy of so much more!
hear my story
As a highly sensitive person (HSP), you were born with a beautiful, scientifically-proven trait that gives you an abundance of empathy, intuition, creativity, and awareness. It allows you to process more information and feel things more deeply than others. This also means you get overwhelmed and overstimulated more easily, you need alone time to recharge and recover, and you're likely very in tune to your own and other people's emotions. Once you become a mom, each of those challenges is made even tougher by this new, emotionally-charged, 24/7 gig with a whole bunch of extra stimuli.
Plus, there's this belief kicking around...
It says once you become a mom there's no time for you, everyone else comes first now, and your needs don't matter. It says you have to be constantly exhausted, depleted, stressed, and overwhelmed. That you can't take time for yourself, do things for yourself, or buy things for yourself. It says the more burned out and run down you are, the bigger medal you receive. And if you're not feeling that way, you're not doing enough. Go, go, go, give, give, give.

The world may have tried to convince you that you're overly sensitive, that you're too much or not enough of this or that. Maybe you carry around shame about your sensitivities, adapting by hiding those parts of you, pushing away your feelings and needs, and disconnecting from others or yourself. It might not even seem possible to thrive as a mom while at the same time honoring your identity as an HSP. But it absolutely is possible to be not just a good mom, but a great freakin' mom. And the more you lean into your beautiful HSP traits, the more ease you can bring into your life. You deserve to do things for yourself, take time for yourself, and live an unapologetically imperfect mom life that seriously lights you up.
I always used to feel that radical self-love was way out of reach, but what I realized is that there's just some myths about it that need to be debunked.
Staying home with a baby can be a phenomenon of both of these at the same damn time. It may sound like a paradox, but I assure you it's possible to feel this way!
