Jared DeFife, PhD
I love working with HSPs and emotionally intense adults who may struggle with chronic depression, existential angst or decision dread, personality concerns, Borderline Personality Disorder, and conflicts about relationships. My work as a therapist is highly interpersonal, emotion-focused, and depth-oriented, based on Mentalization-Based Therapy. MBT is a research supported attachment-based psychotherapy that helps people develop a deep, nuanced, flexible, and empathic understanding of ourselves and others. When big feelings and difficult social challenges leave us feeling all stirred up and in a tangle, healthy mentalizing promotes regulation of big emotions, resilience through tough times, and helps cultivate the experience of security and confidence within ourselves and in important relationships.

Danielle Smith, LMFT
I specialize in helping HSPs learn how to make the most of their gifts and better manage overstimulation. As an HSP myself, I have helped many HSPs learn the skills they need to find peace in a busy world of high stimulation and high demands.
