Find Highly Sensitive People Therapists & Counselors in Marlborough, MA.

 

A Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) experiences heightened sensitivity to internal and external influences, which leads them to feel bigger reactions to situations and people. HSPs often process things very deeply and are extremely influenced by their surroundings. If you are a highly sensitive person, you may have been called “overly sensitive” or “ fragile” by people who don’t understand you.

It is estimated that up to 20% of people are highly sensitive persons, otherwise known as people with sensory processing sensitivity. A licensed therapist who specializes in HSP therapy can help you understand your triggers, learn to see your sensitivities as strengths, and live your best life. Whether you are located in downtown Marlborough, the suburbs of Marlborough, other nearby places such as Worcester, Waltham, or anywhere else in Massachusetts, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

  • You are often overwhelmed by crowds of other people.
  • You frequently need time alone to process your thoughts and feelings.
