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.

Unrealistic Expectations

Do you have unrealistic expectations of yourself, followed by self-judgment, criticism and berating yourself? How do you honor where you’re at and find the balance between honoring and pushing? Much of the healing you do is in relationship with others. There may also be an expectation that you will “arrive” at a permanent state of healing or peace, and then you judge yourself when you drop back into the struggle. Specific tools are provided for when you’re back in the “meh.”


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
