Sensitive and Extraordinary

A blog about the joys and challenges of parenting a highly sensitive child

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. I started this blog in 2013 when my highly sensitive son was three years old and decided to stop it in 2018, partly because I got too busy to post regularly, but mostly because I didn't have as much to say on the topic anymore. The blog is still visited by many every day, which is why I didn't want to delete it, but I did have to cancel my website (, and my old posts now live here.

I hope more than anything that you find comfort in these stories. Although my son, my family, and I have changed drastically over the years, these stories remain true. If you want to chat about your journey or ask me about mine, please don't hesitate to reach out. I would love to hear from you.

To find out more about my picture books for highly sensitive children, you can do that here.

My best,
