A Special Invitation for Highly Empathic & Sensitive People

It’s a tremendous gift to be an empath—but if you haven’t learned to regulate your gifts and set strong boundaries, the energy you absorb from others can lead to depression, anxiety, addiction, and other health concerns.

As an empath myself, I’ve developed many effective strategies to deal with the inherent challenges of exceptional sensitivity, which I use and teach patients. For me to thrive as a psychiatrist and an empath, I need these strategies to work or I’ll go on sensory overload or burn out.

I created The Empath’s Survival Guide Online Course as a companion to my book The Empath’s Survival Guide and as a hands-on resource for learning the essential skills you need to become healthy and empowered in a world that is often coarse, heartless, and disdainful of being sensitive.

"It’s my mission to make sure empaths like you get what they need to survive and thrive. Your gifts are needed so much today."

I call this course a “survival guide,” but survival is only the first step. It’s my mission to make sure empaths like you get what they need to survive and thrive — particularly as we move out of quarantine and the pandemic. Your gifts are needed so much today.

Empaths and sensitive people are on the forefront of a new way of being for humankind. We empaths have many marvelous traits. We have huge hearts and the instinct to help others in need. We are passionate, caring, creative, in touch with our emotions, and able to see the big picture. We have exceptional attunement to the natural world and a great capacity for spiritual awakening.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to discover your true power and potential as an empath.

Keep honoring your sensitivities,
