Candy Crawford, MSW, LCSW, is a therapist, educator, and advocate for highly sensitive people. She maintains a private practice in the Chicago area, where she specializes in Sensory Processing Sensitivity and facilitates workshops and retreats.

I am passionate in using the therapeutic relationship as a powerful tool for personal transformation. For those willing to engage in the work that therapy invites, I am confident individuals can experience increased levels of personal fulfillment, purpose, and internal freedom.

My goal is to facilitate the healing process and help clients access their own strength and courage. I enjoy working with individuals who desire more for themselves and consequently, their lives.

What HSP Clients Have Received Help With:

“Individuation involves two movements, inward to discover the one who is, and outward to learn about one’s place in the function of the world.” (June Singer from The Power of Love)

What We Do


HSP – Highly Sensitive Person Trait

Triving at the Riverbank

Thriving at the Riverbank is at the heart of Candy’s work as an HSP advocate. These intimate groups meet monthly on topics tailored to support the flourishing of highly sensitive individuals in an overwhelming world.


Learn about trait in general. Can be in person or over phone. I consult with individuals and/or groups. Clients do not have to be residents of Illinois.

Workshops & Conferences

I teach half day, full day and weekend workshops on various facets of the trait. *See list of examples on Events page Rates: Inquire within.


“Candy is a true authority on high sensitivity, both research and self-care methods, which I have seen first hand. Even with this intellectual understanding, she combines heart and mind in a way people love, especially we sensitive ones.”
