I continued to work with my friend’s daughter as I knew her job wasn’t the only issue. Her grandmother had passed away the year before and her parents had divorced about six years ago. No matter how well parents handle splitting up the family, children are sure to have some emotional repercussions. If those issues are not dealt with, their future relationships will suffer.
I subconsciously asked if the issue involved her family and sure enough she had the feeling that she had missed out on having a complete family. It also made her feel like she had no control over her own life.
