Do you feel misunderstood by others or overwhelmed by your emotions? If you're someone who experiences emotions more intensely than others, you may have been told you’re "difficult" or "too sensitive." You might feel burned out at work or drained by your relationships. Having an emotionally sensitive personality can also contribute to feelings of anxiety, depression, self-doubt, fear, loneliness, and anger or physical symptoms such as migraines and upset stomach.
People with sensitivity to intense emotions frequently struggle to find support. You may have tried reaching out before and left feeling misunderstood and dismissed or frustrated and defeated. Though it may feel lonely at times, you are not alone. Throughout the therapy process, you can learn how to lessen the intensity of your emotions, improve your relationships, and create a more balanced life.

Torie Cueto, LMFT
Hi! I'm Torie. I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist providing individual therapy for adults and teens in San Diego, CA. I work with clients who are high achieving, accomplished, and seem to others like they have it all figured out. They also silently struggle to live up to their own perfectionist expectations, develop and maintain fulfilling relationships, and cope with feelings of anxiety and depression. Through our work together, I help clients find or rediscover feelings of hopefulness, happiness, and resiliency.
