Amazing

Hi my name is Tracey when I stumbled upon this podcast I was genuinely surprised by the compassion you have for your patients!!! I worked at a Family practice office for many years and there were 6 Dr’S some of them did not have any compassion so over the many years I just accepted the lack of compassion in physicians.

With my own life growing up I had an absent mom she was there physically but through my own research I believe she is an emotionally immature parent and now I am the adult child of such parent. Somehow I was not that to my own child thankfully.

After leaving my sons dad I stayed single I wanted him to have the best life I could give him I never wanted him to see me cry over anyone or get attached to someone and then they left I didn’t want anyone to treat him like a red headed step child. He is now 24 and amazing.

A few years back I finally got involved in a relationship I would have been better off single I was in a narcissistic relationship talk about text book he was and the aftermath Was me it was crazy still is. I never saw a therapist I went into a funk scared of everything and my whole life I never had anyone to talk to I always felt nobody cared about what I had to say even now nobody understands CPTSD everyone says move on get over it.

If I new that I would get a therapist such as yourself someone that cares and has compassion I would go I need to go but I won’t I can’t be that vulnerable to someone and feel like they are looking at the clock because I will cry ugly and to feel like I am still alone it would kill me more inside.

You are the greatest I wish I lived closer

This is what real empathy sounds like

I want to address the concerns that a few people have expressed about Hillary's tone of voice seeming fake or condescending. I can see how upon first listen it might come across this way, as it is not the most typical way of reacting to others. However, after spending many hours listening to her speak on multiple podcasts (the liturgists, ask science mike, you made it weird with pete holmes) I have come to know that her reactions to her clients' pain are genuine and empathetic. She simply cares THAT deeply about her clients as humans, not just because it is her job. Keep up the extraordinary work!
