Welcome — I’m Julie Bjelland, LMFT!
I’m a Sensitivity Expert, Psychotherapist, and Founder of this Sensitive Empowerment Community.
I specialize in working with highly sensitive people. My mission is to teach you how to balance and honor your sensitive nervous system, understand your incredible value, love who you are, and empower you to share your many superpower gifts with the world.
Why You Should Join Us
Sensitive people are like orchids -- with the right conditions, we can bloom brilliantly. You are needed in the world, and I want to guide and support you to live to your highest potential.
Here you will learn about yourself and your needs, understand the trait of high sensitivity, grow in a supportive space, and connect in meaningful ways to other highly sensitive people.
I have studied and researched this trait for years. I've infused into this group everything that works to reduce the challenges of being sensitive and increases the positives.
By joining this group, you'll get to participate in HSP-focused live Q&As, videos, podcasts, articles, special guest speakers, and regular self-care + self-love reminders. All of this will help to calm your nervous system and optimize your daily experience in the world.
You'll learn about your brain differences, why your nervous system is often over-activated, and what to do about it. This information will help your mind and body feel more balanced energy, joy, peace, resilience, patience, calm, and fuller access to your positives and gifts.
Engage in wonderfully deep conversations and connections with other HSPs with similar experiences and interests. It feels good to be surrounded by kind, compassionate, and supportive HSPs and feel understood and validated. I’ve had so many HSPs say this is the first time they truly understood, accepted, and loved themselves.
You can transform, love yourself authentically, feel balanced in the world, increase your creativity, and move from surviving to thriving. Imagine what your life could be if you could thrive and bloom brilliantly in the world. ❤
“We've been familiar with Julie Bjelland’s work since we first started Highly Sensitive Refuge, and we’ve always considered her one of the leading voices in the HSP community. Julie combines a warm and inspiring personality with hard research into how the brain works — and what makes the sensitive mind different. Everything Julie does is focused on helping sensitive people understand, and gradually “re-train” their brains to keep using their greatest gifts while overcoming their struggles. She helps highly sensitive people achieve a much-needed sense of balance, and we’re proud to support her work.”—Andre Sólo and Jenn Granneman, founders of Highly Sensitive Refuge
"I first found Julie and her work with HSPs in 2019 through the Shift Network's Empowered Empath Summit. Julie's focus on brain training was of huge interest, but most importantly, I was struck by her gentle presence, depth of knowledge, and bright intellect. When I heard about Julie's Sensitive Empowerment Community I knew it would be a place that would change people's lives. If you are a Highly Sensitive Person and crave community and continued learning about the trait, do yourself a favor and check it out!" ~Leah K. Walsh Life Coach

When we talk about self-care and our “wins,“ I have to add this space to my self care and make time for it every single day.
