Is sensitivity impacting and controlling you or your family?
Are you experiencing chaos, stress, overwhelm, anxiety, hopelessness?
On a bad day, even small challenges feel like big traumas.
It’s time for radical self-care!
Wondering if you are highly sensitive?
There are 1.5 billion highly sensitive people on the planet.
If you find you are highly sensitive, or your child is, you are definitely not alone.
Sometimes it feels that way when you are different.
Well... community with other HSPs, people like you, is the key to resilience and thriving.

The Struggle is Real for us Highly Sensitive People
Maybe you’ve noticed that you or your sensitive family member is NOT FUN on NOT ENOUGH SLEEP.
HSPs are more sensitive to blood sugar fluctuations. They need a very balanced diet with almost no caffeine and sugar.
Once HSPs get run down or stressed out, we are more likely to become ill or injured.
Your Sensitivity is Your Superpower!
You think deeply about things.
You come up with solutions to problems big and small.
You appreciate beauty and feel exquisite empathy for others, including animals and the planet.
HSPs need plenty of fresh air, exercise, sleep, nutritious frequent meals, and DOWN TIME.
When you get too stressed out or anxious or overwhelmed, you can’t find your own answers.
Too Much – Too Overwhelmed – Too Perfectionist
Are you just TOO DAMN SENSITIVE?
Your Sensitivity is your Superpower!
Community is important and so is learning about high sensitivity.
Research has identified the HSP 5 to Thrive. Curious?

HSP, YOU ARE NOT TOO MUCH!
2 Strategies in Over 100 Species
There are two strategies for how people (and animals) behave in the world (research by Wolf et al, 2009):
Responsive, reflective, reactive, sensitive
Go for it; if wrong, go for it again.
Nonresponsive, impulsive, low reactivity, non-sensitive
HSPs, or highly sensitive people, are the first group.
We are careful and deliberate about our actions.
We can advise the more impulsive majority and guide the community or the culture to wise action. AND guess what?
All that crying or worrying… it’s called EMOTIONAL LEADERSHIP.
HSPs are also canaries. When the sensitive child is becoming overtired or overstimulated, it’s likely true that the rest of the children in the family or classroom will soon follow.
More time, more sleep, more time in nature, more frequent healthy meals, all of these things that help sensitive children thrive are actually good for all people.
At Are You Highly Sensitive, we create community and education to help HSPs embrace sensitive leadership.

"Alane has been such an inspiration and friendly guide during the journey that helped me discover my HSP trait. Her continuous work will hopefully help many generations of HSP to thrive."

"I really enjoy working with Alane Freund. She is so approachable and easy to talk to, plus she is highly knowledgeable about Highly Sensitive People. I have learned so much from her workshops. She makes me feel known and far less alien than I tend to feel in a world full of people who are not sensitive and don't get HSPs. "

That’s me, Alane Freund, MS, MA, ICHS. While I have been working as a family therapist and counselor in California for three decades, these video calls are not psychotherapy. I will be here as your consultant and coach on high sensitivity. I am one of the International Consultants on High Sensitivity (ICHS), a select group of professionals identified by Dr. Elaine Aron. ICHS professionals are clinicians and scientists who teach, write, and research the trait of highly sensitive people and are current on the latest scientific research. My mission is to reach all HSPs in the world with accurate information and genuine support. Thank you for joining me.
