Sensitive Feelers & Empaths

Ever been told you’re “too sensitive” or “too empathetic?”

Feel exhausted from absorbing other people's feelings?

Think deeply and have a rich inner world?

Have a hard time saying "no" to others?

Avoid conflicts like the plague?

If you answered yes to those questions, we’ve got you!

We specialize in helping teens and adults who are sensitive feelers and empaths. Our therapists help you learn how to understand yourself and start seeing your sensitivity as a strength instead of a weakness.

The world can be unkind to sensitive feelers and empathic people, and it can be hard sometimes. Being sensitive in an insensitive world can leave you feeling misunderstood. But with therapy specifically for a sensitive feeler or empath, you can thrive.

Here at Yellow Chair Collective, we understand the difficulties of being a sensitive feeler and empath. We understand the struggles you encounter every day.

Are you a sponge? Do you soak up other’s emotions as your own?

This is a common trait amongst both sensitive feelers and empaths. People turn to you for advice. You’re a helper. But constantly focusing on everyone’s problems leaves you no time to consider your own.

At the end of every day, you’re emotionally drained. You’re exhausted from all the helping you’re doing. And you promise yourself you’ll make more time for just you. But when you finally carve out time for yourself, you feel guilty and selfish that you could be helping someone else.

And this cycle never ends. Eventually, you’re burnt out and overcome with stress and anxiety.

You are not alone!

Around 15-20% of the world’s population qualify as a sensitive feeler and/or an empath. S0, you don’t have to hide in the shadows of your negative emotions. Know that you are not alone. You can be sensitive and strong at the same time!

People of all genders can be sensitive feelers and empaths. Furthermore, there is an equal amount of sensitive feelers and empaths across all genders. It’s okay to be a sensitive feeler or an empath, regardless of how you identify. But evidence shows that men often deny their sensitivity or try to hide it. This only makes emotions more difficult to cope with.

At our Los Angeles and New York City-based counseling center, we have therapists that also identify as a sensitive feeler and/or empath. We are proud of our identities as sensitive feelers and empaths, and we are here to help you do the same!
