Sitting outside a coffee shop, talking with a friend, it seems like things are starting to get better. Just then there’s a squeal of tires, a crash, and from that moment maintaining the conversation becomes difficult. Words become less clear, there’s a fuzziness in the background and focusing is almost impossible. It seems like the next few hours, if not the entire day is likely going to be challenging. You have coping mechanisms and can talk to friends and family, but there’s little that really makes it better until it just passes on its own.
This is what it’s like to live life as a highly sensitive person.
Whether something is as dramatic as a car accident, or as simple as a loud office, with sights, sounds, and interruptions everywhere, the distractions of life pile up. We look for solace from nature, art, and quiet contemplation, but it’s never enough. As a highly sensitive person, I have spent the last 6 years developing an innovative approach for relieving stress and increasing relaxation while releasing all the stored baggage that keeps us stuck.
Resonant Sound Experience is my system to both heal past wounds, and to help develop sensitive awareness into the gift it can truly be. I know how hard it can be to find a good therapist that fits, or how hard it is to look for someone new. In addition, for people who have a history of trauma, it can be hard to know who is safe to talk to. Add to that a lifetime of disappointment, and both the process of looking and the work itself can seem overwhelming. This is why Resonant Sound Experience as a gentle and specific process is so important. Being told what to do isn’t the answer anymore. You get to be the focus, you get to be heard deeply for what you want and need, you get to be fully understood. That is essential to the RSE process.
I specialize in working with highly sensitive people including those that struggle with anxiety, codependency, and adult child-of-addiction issues. Using a blend of trauma therapies with the creative process, I help find the emotional short circuits and loops that trauma has created that keep us stuck in our lives.
Being highly sensitive, you likely smell, taste, feel, perceive, and express yourself with an intense awareness of your surroundings, your body, and your emotions. This also makes recalling painful events or situations more difficult, as you tend to re-experience them almost as vividly as they were experienced the first time. New people and situations may evoke worry or fear. It requires understanding these feelings to work with them effectively. If you, a friend, or a loved one have tried traditional treatment methods and found discussing your issues was uncomfortable or like you were just repeating yourself, it’s possible Resonant Sound Experience may be perfect for you.
