Unapologetically Sensitive

We explore how sensitivity weaves itself into our lives; the richness that it adds, and the strengths we have BECAUSE of our sensitivity--and some of the challenges it poses as well. You may learn to live a bolder, brighter life.

Complex childhood trauma and healing for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)


Kina Wolfenstein


Kina defines trauma (and it may surprise you), and how the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) responds to trauma. We talk what may not be considered trauma (but is), and how it impacts the person in adulthood (including attachment systems). Kina talks about trauma responses as they relate to polyvagal theory, and why a bottom-up approach is highly effective, and which modalities work from a bottom-up approach. Kina also provides examples of things we can do heal as well as the importance of co-regulation.


Kina Wolfenstein is a graduate student in her final semester of school.  She will be graduating with her Master’s degree in social work in May, and pursuing clinical trauma counseling. She has worked as a trauma counselor at a domestic violence center, and as a developmental specialist for at-risk children. She focuses her work on Complex PTSD and helping people understand and heal from complex traumas. She also has a podcast called Complex Trauma Recovery.


Patricia is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Coach.  She knows what it’s like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truthteller.  Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation, and a sense of self-compassion.  She created the podcast Unapologetically Sensitive to help other HSPs know that they aren’t alone, and that being an HSP has amazing gifts, and some challenges.  Patricia works online globally working individually with people, and she teaches Online Courses for HSPs that focus on understanding what it means to be an HSP, self-care, self-compassion, boundaries, perfectionism, mindfulness, communication, and creating a lifestyle that honors us
