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.

Boundaries, the Holidays and The Highly Sensitive Person (HSP)


Jen Perry, MSEd, MA, LPC


Expectations around the holidays can cause stress, anxiety, and depression—especially for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). We focus on setting boundaries, redefining what you want the holidays to look like, and how you can communicate compassionately while maintaining boundaries; this includes setting and maintaining boundaries with narcissists or toxic people. We talk about expectations & disappointments and lowering the bar and letting go of having the picture-perfect holiday in order to experience peace, joy and connection. 


Jen Perry, MSEd, MA, LPC has been a psychotherapist for 20 years. She specializes in helping Highly Sensitive People thrive in love, work, and parenting Highly Sensitive Children. Jen is passionate about using mindfulness and compassion-based approaches to ameliorate human suffering.


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
