HI, I'm Brooke!

I'm a therapist, writer and coach who believes that unconditional acceptance and the right support has the power to transform us.

But I used to think something was wrong with me. 

The critical look on my friend's face when I told her I felt sad that childhood was coming to a close, the volleyball 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 I was somehow defective.

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 Millions of others, was born this way
was a game changer. 

With support, I started healing my wounds from 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.
