Highly Sensitive Queers with Brian Torres



Join me for this enriching conversation with licensed psychotherapist, Brian Torres, on what it means to be a Highly Sensitive Person and how embracing this part of your nature can help you create a more optimal lifestyle.


Some of the topics Brian and I discuss:

  • The core traits of highly sensitive people

  • What D.O.E.S. - Depth, Over-Arousal, Emotional Responsiveness, and Sensitivity to Subtleties – has to do with high sensitivity

  • Misconceptions that high sensitivity isn’t backed by science, is the same as introversion or is a mental health diagnosis

  • The parallels of living with high sensitivity and living as LGBTQ individuals

  • The “Five to Thrive” tenets of self-care for Highly Sensitive people
