Bonus Episode 36


Being Vulnerable and Having Deep Feelings Takes Courage and Strength


Solo episode—Patricia Young


This is a pretty vulnerable episode.  My husband was out of town, and toward the end of the week I sent my husband and message that I was struggling, and he didn’t respond. This really hurt my feelings, and I realized that I have a hard time being direct and asking for what I need.  I wasn’t taking care of my need for play and doing creative projects, and I was feeling resentful because my husband is really good about taking care of his needs. I also realized that I function better when he is gone.  I talk about how we both used this information to create something that works better for both of us. I also talk about some things that I did to shift my energy to create a lighter more playful environment for myself.


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.
