Group Norms / Expectations

  • Speak what has heart and meaning for you: about your experience, questions, concerns, thoughts; emotions, and needs. Reading this book together may feel therapeutic and poignant at times, yet it is important to remember it is not a therapy or support group.
  • Stay focused on the topic at hand.
  • Please come prepared, having read the chapter, and engage in the group’s discussion – where your thoughts, feelings, needs, perspectives are not only welcome but needed. Each HSP experience is different, and we learn best when open to all experiences and perspectives.
  • It is okay to respectfully agree to disagree, however, the group’s purpose is to learn about Elaine Aron’s research and work about high sensitivity.

About Jacquelyn:

Jacquelyn has been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 1993, having worked exclusively with highly sensitive people since 2000.  She is one of the very first pioneers, with Elaine Aron, of what is now an international movement connecting HSPs around the world.  Jacquelyn & Elaine co-founded the HSP Gathering RetreatsSince 2001 , and there have been 36 and counting, national and international retreats.   We will be celebrating the 37th retreat as soon as it is safe to gather, and possibly we will gather virtually as well.

Jacquelyn’s background in Social Work, Women’s Studies, cultural diversity, and a graduate degree in Counseling have empowered and informed her work since first finding out about our HSP trait in May of 1996.   Her psychotherapy practice included therapeutic orientations, coaching principles, mixed with a client’s spiritual foundation. She has been trained in hypnotherapy and loved her work as an EMDR, Level II practitioner.

She has been certified to utilize Myers Briggs Personality Assessment since 1991, and is also well versed in the use of the Enneagram, using both of these modalities, when helpful, in her work.    She now connects with highly sensitive people around the world as an HSP mentor, coach, educator, and retreat & workshop leader, including the HSP Gathering Retreats, and her Nature as Teacher and Healer retreats held in beautiful Colorado where she lives.    She is an expert on Sensory Processing Sensitivity and a member of ICHS – International Consultants High Sensitivity, a group of international professionals trained by Elaine Aron in 2018.
Jacquelyn has been married to an introvert, who is not highly sensitive, since 1978 and is the mother of two grown sons, one an HSP, and one simply very kind, compassionate, yet without the sensitive nervous system.  She is the grandmother of three delightful grandchildren, ages 3, 4, and 6.  One granddaughter is almost certainly a sensitive extrovert like her grandmother.
