Jacquelyn Strickland audio interview

By Douglas Eby

Jacquelyn Strickland is a Licensed Professional Counselor, Coach and workshop leader based in Fort Collins, Colorado. Her approach specializes in blending therapeutic principles and coaching strategies with a spiritual foundation.

"The idea of acting versus reacting is so important for highly sensitive people, because we do take in so much from our environment. I like to use the idea of mindfulness...

"Be aware of ways in which we can be overstimulated.. it's not that overstimulation is a consistently bad thing; it's like, what is that optimal level of arousal? If we're understimulated, we're bored; if we're overstimulated, we get too much cortisol in our system..."

She also talks about Dabrowski and excitabilities versus high sensitivity, and how HSPs can empower themselves, including connecting with others, such as at the HSP gatherings co-created by Jacquelyn Strickland with Dr. Elaine Aron.
