Case Study: Meghan is a 34-year-old single woman seeking counsel from you for her frustration and unhappiness in life. As you assess her story you find out the following information: She is a CPA and works at a local accounting firm. She reports feeling very anxious most of the time and has felt that way for the past year. She also reports being tired all the time and has difficulty concentrating. She really doesn’t have any friends and has not dated since high school. She grew up in a family with many conflicts, and her parents divorced shortly after she left for college. She has two older brothers, and she still holds angry feelings toward her family. Her mother has been on anxiety medication for several years. She also reports that she often feels down (depressed) and has felt that way for most of her adult life. As you question her, you find out that she was sexually abused by her brother at the age of 9 and has never told anyone but you. She appears to be very upset, depressed, and angry about this abuse.
