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.

I Want More: You Want Less. How We Navigate Competing Needs in Relationships


Solo episode Patricia Young, LCSW


Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) often have different needs for connection in relationships.  I talk about a recent incident where this happened, and it triggered my wounding of feeling like I’m “too much.” I talk about how I communicated, and what self-care looked like in this situation, and how I didn’t use rules to try and protect myself. Neither person has to be wrong when this happens. It’s all about communication. When we experience Childhood Emotional Neglect (CEN) this can complicate things.



Patricia Young, LCSW is a coach & therapist in California.  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, and she provides coaching to people all over the world. We meet over a private platform (similar to Skype), and you can have therapy or coaching 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.
