Maria is a Highly Sensitive Parent and is a mom to a Highly Sensitive Child. This means that my son and I struggle to cope with the sensory overload of daily life, and create a duo that gets easily overwhelmed in situations that don’t pose much of a challenge for others. Motherhood put me on a path to discovering the world of High Sensitivity and how it relates to parenting. Before becoming a mother, I spent years working with special needs kids as a therapist, tutor, and hippotherapy volunteer. I have been using my work and motherhood experience to create resources for other parents who are finding their parenting experience to be overwhelming, and who would like to thrive in their new role as parents.
