"Professional, caring and loved the follow up process. I loved
how you knew how much to push me and when to back off. I am in a better place
mentally and emotionally then I have been in many many years. I cant ever begin
to thank you enough. I would like to refer my sister to you now." Ruth K
Ruth is an ambitious 32-year-old warehouse supervisor and a
single mother of one preteen. She states
that anxiety became an issue for her in childhood. She often felt that her
needs were unmet and came to believe that what she wanted was unreasonable and
She grew up in a small town and was the middle child in a
large family. She attended school sporadically as a child and received little guidance
in terms of education or long term personal goals. She recently completed her
GED and is extremely proud of this accomplishment.
Ruth states that her parents were both hard workers and
strove to ensure that the family’s basic needs were cared for. Her father often
told the children that his job was to keep a “roof over our heads and food in
our bellies.” Ruth now believes that while that goal was admirable, it fell
short in terms of providing support beyond immediate survival needs.
Early on Ruth made the decision to be “free”
from the demands of a large family. Her initial plan was to leave home and
create a career. However, she became pregnant in her late teens, lost contact
with the father of her child and was compelled to focus on providing for basic needs.
Throughout the years, she longed to complete her high school
diploma and enroll in further education. However, finding the time, energy and
money was a challenge. She placed her dreams on the back burner and in her words,
became like her parents, concerned with “keeping a roof over our heads and food
in our bellies.” This way of life gnawed at her and she became increasingly
frustrated, angry, and anxious.
Ruth requested support because she was beginning to lose
hope for the future. While she was
managing her day today life well (working and keeping a roof over our head and
keeping our bellies fed), she knew she wanted more from life. She was anxious
and overwhelmed with where to begin.
Ruth had a strong desire to create lasting
change and was prepared for success planning. She was keen on discovery work
and creating a better future for herself and her daughter. She was an excellent
candidate for the custom social experiments and for following through with the
accountability processes agreed upon. Today, she has conditioned beliefs and actions
that are congruent with the identity of someone who is ambitiously and joyfully
working toward a brighter future.
