Sherry Friedman, MS, MA, MS Ed., LCMHC
I am an HSP therapist who integrates traditional evidenced-based psychotherapy (CBT, DBT, EMDR) with my unique background in holistic nursing, complementary energy healing practices, and expressive arts therapy to skillfully address traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, and a variety of mood disorders. After decades of work experience with children and families in clinical, educational, and community mental health settings, in addition to 20+ years of personal experience as a highly sensitive parent of my own highly sensitive children (now adults), I am well-equipped to consult with parents raising highly sensitive children. It is my honor to be able to specialize in empowering HSP children, teens, adults, and couples seeking therapy to become the amazing individuals they came here to be!

Amelia Kelley, PhD, MS, LPC, ATR, RYT
I am an integrative therapist who specializes in using art therapy, yoga therapy, mindfulness based work, meditation and a number of other research supported treatments to help regulate stress, address both chronic and single indecent trauma, address substance use and eating disorders, help improve relationship problems, anxiety, depression and mood disorders. I work with HSP’s to empower them, helping them to integrate their strengths into their lives while learning to care for themselves in the process. I specialize in work with teens, adults, and couples.
Lisa Knudson, LCSW
I hold a Masters of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of the District of Columbia (HBCU). I work largely from an Internal Family Systems (IFS) perspective, an evidence based theoretical approach that is unique to many other types of therapy. I am also a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) myself.
I appreciate and enjoy working with those who have been impacted by trauma. This includes veterans and military family members, as well as LGBTQ populations, those with Anger issues, Chronic and Terminal illness, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship issues, Life transitions, Grief, Men’s issues, and those struggling with substance abuse and addiction issues. As a Trauma Informed therapist, I work to be aware of the complex impact of trauma (any perceived trauma) on a person’s suffering and how it shapes a person’s efforts to cope.

Rachael Massell, LCSW-S
I specialize in working with adults in group and individual therapy. Typically, clients are high-functioning with a history of attachment/family-of-origin issues and/or complex or relational trauma. I use a relational/attachment-oriented approach and strategically employ EMDR to help move through more “stuck” pieces of work/trauma. As an HSP myself, I particularly enjoy supporting HSP’s in learning how to embrace this trait while building out a meaningful and sustainable life. Additionally, I work from a Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating frame to help folks shift their relationship to food, movement, and their bodies. Other specialities include using a mind-body approach to work with chronic pain/illness, integrating Buddhist psychology, and providing LGBTQIA-affirming and anti-oppressive care.
Thomas L Murray Jr., PhD
I get to the point so that you can get on with your life. You’ll get a straight-forward approach that accesses your HSP strengths. I combine those strengths with mindfulness-based principles, the Work of Byron Katie, and Eastern psychology to help you craft a life worth living. My primary niches are sex and couples therapy; two areas that affect many HSPs. My secondary niche includes artists and other creative types. This niche was developed after 10 years directing a counseling center at a major performing arts conservatory in the South. You can access my services in-office or through a HIPAA compliant video platform, which is available to anyone in NC and FL, only. Visit my website for additional details.

Jessie Spence, MC, LPCS
My clients are the experts on themselves– I just guide, teach, and support along the way. I work hard to make sure my office is a safe place of non-judgment where people can take risks, be vulnerable, and learn about themselves. I am calm, grounded, attentive, open-minded, caring, and knowledgeable. I know when to give my clients a supportive nudge toward change and when to listen with empathy. Clients appreciate that I am gentle, yet firm, with challenging them.
I work well with people who are interested in exploring their depression, anxiety, ADHD, high sensitivity, body positivity, trauma, relationship stress, and life adjustments/transitions. I’m affirming of people who traditionally may feel like outsiders: i.e., LGBTQI community, gay/lesbian families, atheists, and those with strong political values.
I have extensive training in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, secular substance abuse treatment, and transgender health. I am also trained in creative therapy modalities. I am a HSP and parent to a highly sensitive child.
