Biography

Candy Crawford is a therapist, educator, and advocate for highly sensitive individuals. She maintains a private practice in the Chicago area, where she specializes in Sensory Processing Sensitivity, and facilitates workshops and retreats in collaboration with Dr. Elaine N. Aron, research psychologist, educator, and pioneer in the field of high sensitivity.

Prior to her clinical practice, Candy spent over a decade championing the rights of diverse children and families as a public school social worker. This tenure, as well as the life-changing experience of mothering her two highly sensitive daughters, now young women, cemented Candy’s commitment and devotion to the long-neglected needs of the highly sensitive population.

Candy finds delight and meaning in her deep engagement with nature and animals, particularly her dog, Maya; in her ever-increasing library of books; and in the sanctuary of good conversation. With her whole heart, Candy believes the world will be a significantly better place when the gifts, perspectives, and identities of highly sensitive individuals are embraced.
