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: http://www.selfawarenesscounseling.com/ 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: http://www.meetup.com/Highly-Sensitive-People-of-Portland-OR/about/
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.
