As part of our list of resources for the highly sensitive person, we have a section featuring notable people doing notable work for the highly sensitive community.

Dr. Judith Orloff, the author of The Empath’s Survival Guide, is one such notable person.

And in this post, you’ll get to meet her, browse some of her resources for HSPs, and know her a little better.

If you don’t already.

Let’s Meet Dr. Orloff

Dr. Judith Orloff is an empath, intuitive healer, psychologist, speaker, and bestselling author. As a Psychologist, she specializes in treating highly sensitive people and empaths.

And in her treatments, Dr. Orloff is known to integrate traditional medicine with the latest knowledge of intuition, energy, and spirituality.

She believes that:

We are keepers of an innate intuitive intelligence so perceptive that it can tell us how to heal — and prevent — illness. Yet intuition and spirituality are the very aspects of our wisdom usually disenfranchised from traditional health care.

And according to her website, Dr. Orloff has been called “the godmother of the empath movement”, “the positive energy guru”, and “a prominent energy-based healer”.

What would YOU call her?
