“My time with Chelsie was valuable for a couple reasons. It is refreshing to meet another HSP! Being coached by someone who has walked in your shoes is much more effective than by someone who has been “trained by the book”. She really “got” me, and we could relate to eachother. Knowing Chelsie has helped herself to manage and embrace her sensitivities gave me hope I can do the same. She had some practical advice and applicable suggestions that I could easily implement. I enjoyed the camaraderie I felt during our phone calls.
I love that Chelsie feels so passionately about helping other HSPs and is following her heart. She has my endorsement!”

“My daughter deals with being an HSP, and my husband and I can’t express enough how much Chelsie has supported us through her compassion and wisdom.
When a child does not have the insight or vocabulary to convey what he/she is feeling, having someone to help answer questions and put worries to rest is invaluable to a parent. We feel so fortunate to have Chelsie to call upon when we need some advice/support; her knowledge and articulate explanations of HSP characteristics as they relate to our child have helped us immensely. We are so grateful for her work, and we support Chelsie wholeheartedly as she educates the world about something so many struggle with in silence.”

“I had never heard of the term ‘HSP’ until meeting Chelsie. She has helped me identify and understand further what it’s like to possess this trait. She has been a confidant in my early stages of realizing I am an HSP and has been a calming voice of reason.”

“Chelsie has helped me a great deal with someone very close to me. After hearing about this person’s personality, tendencies and troubles, she suggested that the loved one I was concerned about may be an HSP.
She sent me links and shared her knowledge and it totally made sense. I see so many of the sensitive trait qualities in the person I am concerned about, and I understand why they are the way they are so much more now! I am currently learning more and more about the trait. Chelsie has been so supportive and informative.”
“There are two things I really love….Travel and Fitness. I have been an active person, involved in sports since my early teen years. In my early 20s I started to weight train…and mostly alone. I couldn’t help but think this was odd when all my buddies liked to train together, and asked me to come with them, but I would prefer not to. I couldn’t help but wonder…..was something wrong with me?
When I was 23 I decided to move across the world, to Australia… for a YEAR and ALONE! This also seemed odd, and I was very scared, but I had a deep urge to travel and see the world. After travelling I developed a passion to learn guitar, on my own, with no lessons.
Up until about 18 months ago, I always felt that my preferences were a little “weird” and I felt different than others. Then I reconnected with Chelsie.
One day when I was explaining one of my recent misfortunes to Chelsie, she told me something. She said she had a book for me to read… and in a kind hearted way (‘cause no man wants to be called “sensitive”) she said … “Matt, I think you might be an HSP!” She explained some of the qualities that HSPs have, and gave me the book: “The Highly Sensitive Person” by Elaine Aron, as a gift. I took the HSP self-test and found most of my answers were true, so I immediately got into the book.
EVERYTHING finally had an answer, a reason.
I knew I loved all these things I did alone… but didn’t want to admit it, beacuse of my “ego” so to speak. Now I have an explanation for why I am the way that I am.
To this day I am so thankful to Chelsie for introducing me to a trait that was in me all along. She explained High Sensitivity to me in a way that pulled out all the positives and for that I am deeply grateful. I no longer feel bad when I refuse the odd Sunday evening get together with a group of friends, because I now understand my needs to recharge and spend time on my own to function at an optimal level, and I am not embarrassed to admit this anymore.”
