Wendy, a 41-year-old African American female

Wendy, a 41-year-old African American female, presents for an assessment with an immediate

declaration: “it’s about time I got some help.”

Wendy reports she was prompted to see a therapist after her close friend recently initiated a

“Heart to heart” talk. “My friend tells me she has never seen a time where I have been happy…

Sure, there are moments when I feel happy, but those moments are pretty fleeting.” Wendy and

her friend has known each other six years.

Wendy admits, for most of the time, she feels “just kind of blah.” “I can’t really

remember the last time I felt consistently good…Maybe in my early 30’s?” Wendy further

reports she struggles with her confidence level. “I’m just mediocre at things. What do I have to

offer people? Therefore, I’m single… No one really wants to be with me and I think my friends

just feel sorry for me.” Wendy doesn’t feel things can improve even when you attempt to engage

her in the possibility that circumstances always have potential to change. “Nahh… You don’t

know me… Things never really work out in my life.”

Wendy’s doesn’t report any incidents of elevated feelings or emotions; she is alert and oriented

in all four spheres. She has never heard voices or seen things that others have not.

Wendy reports her sleep is normal and her appetite is typically unchanged. There are no

medical issues – in fact, her recent physical indicated no abnormal findings. The only medication

Wendy takes is a daily multi-vitamin as she seems to always be tired despite getting adequate

sleep. Wendy denies any difficulty concentrating/decision making and denies current feelings of

suicidal ideation. Wendy consumes alcohol sparingly (“maybe a glass of wine every few

weeks”); she denies the use of illicit substances. Wendy’s friend told her during their

conversation that hanging out with Wendy was “kind of a buzz kill” and her friend thought it

best that their activities together be limited.

Wendy does report that about eight months ago she felt even worse than she does now. At that

time, for about three weeks, she found herself having all the aforementioned symptoms along

with increased sleep, poor appetite (she lost about eight pounds), an inability to make even the

most simple decisions (“I would stand in front of my closet for minutes at a time not being able

to decide what to wear”) and persistent thoughts of “driving into oncoming traffic” in order to

“end it all.” There was one other period when she felt the same way about a year a half

ago. That lasted for about three weeks as well.
