Overview

Isabel is a 29-year-old second-generation Cuban American cisgender woman. She is married to Manuel, who is also Cuban American, and they have two children, David (8) and Carmen (4). Isabel decided to seek therapy at the suggestion of her cousin, who found it helpful in dealing with family issues. She expresses feeling discouraged about her life, constantly tired, and stressed out. Despite finding it difficult to get out of bed at times, she does so because she wants to care for her husband and children. Isabel identifies her marriage as a significant source of her unhappiness, yet her husband refuses to participate in counseling.
