Coaches – Counselors – Therapists who work with highly sensitive people
Jenna Avery “uses her intuition, deep empathy, and innate practicality to help her visionary, creative clients step fully into their creative ideas, dreams, and ability.” She says, “I have found that coaching is an invaluable tool for Highly Sensitive Souls.
“Coaching focuses on helping us claim the truth of who we are, steep in self-acceptance and acknowledgement, nurture our own well-being, and celebrate the expression of our gifts and true selves in the world. When we do this, I believe that anything becomes possible.”

“Dr. Jagiellowicz did her PhD on highly sensitive people, working under Elaine Aron, and currently collaborates on scientific research with Dr. Aron.

Chris M. Lyon, BCH, CC – CoachLyon.com
I’m an intuitive Certified Coach and Board Certified Consulting Hypnotist, with a specialty of working with HSPs for over 15 years.
My research and professional experience began with Elaine Aron’s wonderful book, The Highly Sensitive Person.
I’ve been an educator and writer on HSP self-management and self-care.
My intuitive work with all types and ages of HSP clients can be life-changing.
The work is individually specialized, supportive and pro-active. HSP clients become empowered and learn to thrive as who they truly are, using their natural gifts and abilities to their greatest advantage.
Areas that I address effectively for HSP clients include relationships, transitions, loss, energy, overwhelm, productivity, and anything keeping them from moving forward in the direction that they choose, at their pace. Helpful modalities and tools can be used, such as Hypnosis, NLP and Reiki.
Sessions are in-office, by phone, or via video-conferencing.

Grace Malonai, Ph.D., LPCC, DCC
I am a clinical counselor, consultant and director at TheraThrive, where we focus on supporting highly sensitive, gifted, intense and creative people.
Highly sensitive people often have unique needs, linked to their intensity, passion, and complexity. Likewise, intense sensitivity impacts the whole person, on physical, emotional and spiritual levels.
Therapy is a place for self-expression and healing, and it is my aim to provide clients with a welcoming and safe atmosphere that is calm and engaging. Part of my job is to create a venue that is just right for each client to learn and practice emotional skills, improve communication, and develop a keener awareness and understanding of themselves and others.
As an integrative therapist, my approach is strengths-based and humanistic. I believe counseling is a collaborative process, where my job is to facilitate my clients’ growth. This means that while my clients get relief from the pain of their challenges, they also come to know themselves better.
In other words, they learn to understand and work with their emotions, and they gain skills to manage their emotional reactions. They also attain deeper self-awareness and insight about their relationships, families, social connections, creative processes, and work or school challenges.
