The Challenges & Gifts of Being a Highly Sensitive Musician with Brian Zirngible, LMFT
Brian Zirngible, LMFT
Brian, who is a musician and a therapist, talks about his work with men who are creatives, musicians and artists, but rarely come to therapy on their own, and don’t know that they are Highly Sensitive. Brian talks about the names he was called for being sensitive, and that his family didn’t really talk about feelings. We talk about the importance of self-compassion, mindfulness and curiosity as well as slowing down before responding when we’re picking up on something without having all the information.
Brian Zirngible is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Burnsville, Minnesota. His specialties & passions are supporting highly sensitive men, musicians & performing artists to find more balance, boundaries & bad-assery in their lives. Brian is a performing artist & musician himself, playing in 3 different musical projects. He practices daily meditation, mindfulness & is a husband to a super supportive & amazing wife. Brian is also a father to the cutest fur-baby shih tzu ever!
