Not connecting emotionally

I am a psychiatrist in training, and I’m feeling stuck as I try to build stronger connections with patients. My attending has watched me and told me I need to be more present.

C interviewing patients
T I need to do a good job on this
F emotionally flat (not connecting)
A not use appropriate empathy comments, not act naturally in the clinical setting
R not connect with patients

How can I stay more emotionally present?
