For Those Intuitive Types

intuitive personality types

Oh, the intuitives of the world. The intuitives are based in power and faith. Because of that, they have the power to get things done effortlessly; they somehow just know what they need to do. They also have the ability to read people, and intuitively know what those people want, think, or need. The downside here is that these are very strong personalities; they can intimidate and manipulate quite easily, often without even realizing what they’re doing. Really. It’s an issue for them, and for you.

IF THIS IS YOU: Keep your eyes open for people shutting down around you. Be aware of your superpowers; be aware of how you’re treating people and how you’re coming across. Try and slow down your words, actions, and reactions, and evaluate the impact you’re having. Check in with people: “How am I coming across right now? I’ve noticed you’ve shut down a little bit.” Or: “I don’t want my ideas to be the only ones here. Please, I encourage you to speak up.” Know that you can be a force to be reckoned with. That’s a good thing, really; be proud of yourself. But also remember it’s not that easy for others to contend with you, and to succeed you’ll need to be compassionate and considerate of your partner’s or colleague’s needs.

IF THIS IS YOUR LOVED ONE: You may not enjoy your loved one’s “fly by the seat of your pants” mentality — especially if you’re a cognitive or practical type. However, remember, their skills really are like a superpower. These people know what needs to be done; they know what’s going on with people; they know how to succeed — without anyone ever telling them how. It can be alarming, but just for the fun of it, try flying on their jet stream for a little. See where it can take you. Give them space to do what they want to, and support them. If it makes you feel reckless or out of control, ask them to slow down and fill in the blanks for you. Ask for what you need and speak up when they start getting too wild. But don’t be surprised if something really unexpected comes about because you trusted their intuition.

If you’re not sure where you stand on the scale — Are you more intuitive, or community-centered? How are they connected? — take ten minutes to take our free assessment: The Core Values Index.

Heath and well being during the COVID-19 Pandemic


PLEASE CALL 503-896-8108

During this time of uncertainty and the world feeling upside down, we want you to know we are here for you.

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, and relational triggers are at an all-time high!

Anxiety is out of control. When we hear so much bad news and we have no idea when this pandemic will begin to reverse, it can rattle even the calmest among us, but for people who already struggle with anxiety, it can be crippling. Whether you are new to the emotion or it is an old bedfellow, talking to someone and finding ways to cope and move forward can be incredibly helpful.

Depression is also something that is normal when we stop all normal activities, find ourselves homeschooling our kids, working from home, in isolation, or are grieving the loss of a job, loss of your health, or worse yet, loss of a loved one. Maybe you feel like you shouldn’t be depressed because you haven’t had a “major” loss, but instead, you are feeling low and out of sorts because you couldn’t go on your vacation, throw your child a birthday party, or attend Easter services. We’re here to tell you, if you are a human on planet earth, at this moment in time, you have a reason to be depressed.

If you suffer from PTSD in any form, you are probably being triggered a great deal right now. Many people are feeling triggers that are elusive. You may not even understand why you feel these triggers that cause any number of symptoms from anxiety, to panic attacks to physical issues. This is understandable. Everywhere you turn you hear of life-threatening illness, death, and loss of every kind.

Relationship distress is also a big issue right now. How could it not be? We are all working from home, navigating uncharted territory on every front and there is no end in sight.

You know you need help. You want to talk to someone, but how do you get these services when you are practicing social distancing? Online therapy, that is how we can help. Whether you need individual therapy, couples or help with your whole family, we are here for you.

We understand online therapy is different than seeing your therapist in person! However, there is some research that has found we are able to connect at a very deep level through online therapy. Not every problem is best served through online therapy. We will talk with you and assess if it is a viable option for you.

Please call us today. Whether you have insurance or not, we will do everything we can to get you the help you need.

We have several platforms to do online therapy.  Please reach out to us today.
