An essential component of having a sustainable and enjoyable psychotherapy practice is ensuring it’s set up in a manner that truly honors our unique qualities and needs. What happens, however, if what we truly need to thrive in our practice looks different than that of our colleagues?
Unfortunately, that can lead many clinicians to incorrectly assume it says something negative about them as a therapist or their suitability for the profession. As a self-described Highly Sensitive Therapist (HST), April Snow, LMFT, knows this experience all too well and has made it her mission to help Highly Sensitive Introverts and Therapists create a life that embraces their unique gifts. In this episode, April clarifies what it means to be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), and talks about what lead her to develop a specialty in working with HSTs, some of the biggest misconceptions about being a HST, and how to start developing a practice that is better aligned with the unique qualities of being a HST.
April Snow, LMFT is a licensed psychotherapist, author, and consultant in California who specializes in working with Highly Sensitive Introverts. April strongly believes that being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) doesn’t have to stop you from living a fully engaged life and is on a mission to help HSPs create a life on their own terms so they can manage the overwhelm and start to thrive.
