HSP Support Circle
This meetup is a support group for those identifying as highly sensitive to come together and share issues and solutions in a safe, nonjudgmental space. Although this is not therapy, it can be therapeutic to be heard and listen to others. Our goal is to better understand our traits, share our experience with other HSP's and move beyond feelings of not fitting in and the belief that we are somehow “broken” to a personal empowerment which benefits us and our world in profound new ways. Because of the nature of this group and limited meeting space, it will be necessary to RSVP each week you wish to attend. HSP meetups are always scent-free

What we're about

Hello! My name is Deborah Orandon, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland Oregon and have been working with highly sensitive people for over 30 years in my movement, massage and counseling practices. (Please visit: to get to know me a bit better.) Discovering Dr. Elaine Aron’s Highly Sensitive Person work over 20 years ago, and honoring my own sensitivity, was a turning point for me in being able to move my life toward balance. And I'm excited to share this gift by sponsoring the Highly Sensitive People of Portland, OR Meetup Site.

I've included some more information about the trait of High Sensitivity, here:

My hope is that together we can empathize, share, witness, nurture and cultivate our sensitive selves while forming connections and community. Please feel free to share your ideas for locations and types of meetups, resources for HSPs, tips and information.

I look forward to meeting you and helping this community inter-connect so that we can lend each other support in making the most of our sensitive natures.
