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.

Bonus Episode 34


Update After The Holidays When I Lost My Shirt


Solo episode—Patricia Young


How we get our needs met when we are in a family or community of non-HSPs.  Even with other Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs), we don’t always have the same needs, and it can be challenging to assert ourselves and work as a community so everyone gets their needs met.  I recap the Thanksgiving break when my twins came home from college with a roommate and the other’s girlfriend, and we had kids sleeping on the couch, and I lost my dedicated work space.  I was irritable, depleted, and not my best self.  Bonus Episode 21 is called I Lost My Shirt! (and it’s Not About the Gravy), and on Bonus Episode 23 How to Care For Ourselves When We’re Feeling Depleted and Bonus Epsiode 24 Working Together and Respecting Different Needs and Expectations I share about how difficult and disruptive it is to have HSP needs, and not realize it.  In this episode I talk about how we did it differently, and how it worked out.


Patricia Young, LCSW is a therapist in San Diego who is in private practice.  Patricia works primarily with Highly Sensitive People (HSP) helping them understand their HSPness, and to turn their perceived shortcomings into superpowers.  Patricia is passionate about providing education to help HSPs and non-HSPs understand and truly appreciate all the gifts we have to offer.  Patricia provides online (telehealth) therapy to people who live in California.  We meet over a private platform (similar to Skype), and you can have therapy from the privacy of your own home—when the kids are at school or are napping; from work; in your pajamas, or when you just can’t face sitting in traffic or going out.
