Laura Baird, Psy.D.
I enjoy working with adults whose nervous systems are more sensitive, who are highly empathic and/or who may notice subtleties in their environment that others might miss. I enjoy helping people learn about themselves; how to value their sensitive traits and also take care of their systems to avoid overwhelm. Because the highly sensitive traits are not widely understood or appreciated, many HSP’s have been told they are “too sensitive” in a way that feels hurtful or invalidating. I like to help people re-frame this feedback and heal from any damage caused by negative messages about their systems.
I am enthusiastic about using Internal Family Systems (IFS) to understand and appreciate one’s system, including sensitive parts. IFS is an empowering bio-psycho-spiritual model of self-discovery, unburdening and healing. I have participated in Level 1 and Level 2 training offered through the IFS Institute.

Feeling oversensitive can be a result of many things and deeply impacts our lives. We have access to many strengths when we are deeply sensitive, but for many of us it can feel like a burden until we do some nervous system work and learn to support our body, emotions, spirit and soul.
My work with clients connects them to a deeper truth within themselves and to their own strength, courage, wisdom and resiliency.
As our state of being becomes more organized, and our nervous system gets good support, we grow our bandwidth for the ups and downs of our lives and we can become more centered in our true self. This kind of support can make natural and lasting changes that result in a better relationship with yourself and the world around you.
I am a licensed therapist in AZ, CO and CT as well as a Certified Life Coach. I do much of my work with clients remotely as a coach. I do not accept insurance. Reach out with any questions and to schedule a free consultation.

I specialize in somatic (body-centered), mindfulness-based, experiential psychotherapy with adults who are highly sensitive. Many are, or aspire to be, artists or healers, or are in a helping profession. Also an HSP.

As an HSP, you may experience anxiety and depression, feeling like you do not fit in this insensitive world. You may also feel a sense of exhaustion, overwhelm, and confusion or a sense of being “stuck”. It may be impacting you at work and within your relationships.
My approach to working with sensitivity is to assist clients with understanding their sensitivity and learning to cope within the insensitive world. I also assist clients in understanding their sensitivity from a strength-based perspective. I see all highly sensitive people as “superheroes” who have likely not had their gifts valued and honored. As we work to change the way they see their sensitivity and learn to honor their trait, I have found that clients find a sense of relief, purpose, and renewed motivation.
I perform research in the area of counseling highly sensitive clients. I identify as emotionally sensitive (empath), but am not an HSP. However, my husband and son are both HSPs and I understand the trait well from both a professional and personal level.
