Jessie Bohnenkamp, LPC
I am passionate about working with highly sensitive women, pregnant women and new mothers, and women with anxiety (or any combination of the above!). I have advanced training in maternal mental health and love using cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and supportive therapy to help HSP women and mothers feel healthier and more at ease in their lives.

My practice specializes in self-development and relationship issues. I enjoy working with adults who identify as highly sensitive or deeply empathic, and the struggle that may come with such sensory processing sensitivity or traits, like:
boundaries with self or others, emotional regulation and processing, making meaning of changes and life decisions, and
the desire for quiet or alone time in a demanding world.

I work with individual adults (21 and older) who find themselves feeling anxious, “stuck” or overwhelmed. I specialize in treating anxiety disorders, depression, challenges faced by highly sensitive people (HSP), adult survivors of childhood trauma, complex PTSD, and childhood emotional neglect (CEN). My approach is integrative, meaning I make use of various types of therapies based on the needs and preferences of the client. I help clients connect past patterns with challenges they have in the present in order to make the kinds of changes that lead to a happier and more fulfilling life.

You feel things intensely. You think deeply. Somewhere along the way, you may have gotten the message that this wasn’t okay– that you were too much or too sensitive. And maybe you believed it. While it may not always feel this way, I want you to know that I believe that strong feelings, deep thinking, and being highly attuned are great gifts.
I specialize in working with highly sensitive people, anxiety, and trauma, particularly childhood and medical trauma. I’m an HSP myself and have been described as warm, open, and playful. I always welcome all parts of a person and work from an attachment, psychodynamic, and internal family systems lens. Please reach out for a free consultation to learn more.

If you have ever been told that you are too sensitive, I get it. Some of us are told that we are too sensitive or too much or even that we need a thicker skin. I was told that I am high maintenance!These messages are damaging and can lead to shame, anxiety and self – esteem issues.It would be my honor to walk with you on the journey from shame to self compassion. I would love to witness you as you shed the self that believes your sensitivity is a problem and step into the new self that claims it as your greatest asset!I work exclusively online with limited 1:1 availability. I have a waitlist for group that is especially for HSPs- a place where fellow HSPs support one another, feel accepted and also hold each other accountableEnergy psychology (clinical EFT) and heart math are in my wheelhouse.

I utilize Person-Centered and Existential approaches to help clients explore meaning in their lives and promote self-compassion. My approach can help you to recognize your own strengths and resources, as well as your capacity to adapt, grow, and demonstrate resilience when faced with challenges.
I specialize in supporting high-achieving, perfectionistic, and creative individuals with developing a more compassionate approach to themselves and more fulfilling relationships with others. I often work with clients who feel stuck professionally, struggle with work/life balance, or are considering a career change.
Victoria Chialy Smith, PhD, ABPP
I am a Johns Hopkins-trained licensed clinical psychologist with specialized expertise in the treatment of depression, anxiety, mood, stress, and life adjustment. Many of the clients I work with are children, teens, young adults, and adults who are highly sensitive.
Many of my clients are highly sensitive people and highly empathic. It can be tough to live in the world as a sensitive person. It can be exhausting, as your energy is used up simply to exist in a world that is not at all designed for the sensitive. I help highly sensitive people learn ways to remain grounded while building upon all the strengths that being a sensitive person brings — including creativity, closer connections and relationships with others — to flourish again.
