Health Hack:

Improving Your

Mental Health

as a Highly

Sensitive Person

with guest

Brooke Nielsen


In this week’s episode, Erica and Lauren interview Brooke Nielsen, psychotherapist and founder of the Therapeutic Center for Highly Sensitive People. She is also a writer and speaker who believes that unconditional acceptance and the right support has the power to transform us. We learn about the HSP trait which is a trait that 20% of the population have (scientific name = Sensory Processing Sensitivity).

Understanding this trait is another way to understand yourself or anyone in your life that is more sensitive so we can understand better how this is a super power and not a weakness.

We’ll talk about setting energetic boundaries, emotional processing and tons of tips and strategies for embracing the beauty of sensitivity.

We know you’re going to love this conversation!

Do you know someone in your life who is or might be a highly sensitive person? Please share this episode so we can help spread the message and inform more people about the trait!
