HI, I'm Brooke
The critical look on my friend's face when I told her I felt sad that childhood was coming to a close, the coach who insisted I "yell louder" to my teammates, the relative who told me I needed thicker skin.... each of these experiences helped build the case that something was wrong with me.
By the time I was in high school, I felt certain that my deep feelings and thoughts proved my defectiveness. I made a conscious decision to tuck all that sensitive stuff away and save myself from the embarrassment of being seen.
Then I Learned about HIghly Sensitive People.
I first heard the term HSP in college and read the seminal book on the topic. Time stood still. For the first time, someone both named my experience and said there was nothing wrong with me. I was just wired differently than the other 80% of the population. The door to my sensitive heart cracked open.
learning that I, like billions
of others, was born this way
was a game changer.
With support, I started healing my wounds from trauma and years of self-rejection and shame. Joy emerged as I learned how to live in a way that honored my finely-tuned self.
As I moved past self-acceptance and into genuine appreciation for my sensitive gifts, I became a Marriage and Family Therapist and started giving back to others who, like I had, struggled with anxiety, self-doubt, empathy overload, and overwhelm.
The more I served HSPs, the more I saw the need: we are starving for community, support and belonging.
The trait of High Sensitivity is still largely unknown, and most HSPs are going it alone, made to feel broken by those ignorant about the trait.
I knew it was time for a change
Armed with over a decade of experience as a therapist and advanced training in trauma healing and HSPs, I founded the Therapeutic Center for Highly Sensitive People in Boulder, Colorado.
Not long after, I created Intuitive Warrior, to provide coaching, community and courses to HSPs around the world so that they can find the profound gifts in what they thought were the worst parts of themselves and transform their overwhelm into lives of dynamic calm, even-keeled energy and
