the parents were from vastly different countries and their cultural differences strained their marriage. They fiercely loved their teenage son who suffered from anxiety and depression, and desperately sought ways to help him. As I worked with the teenager, I saw that much of his anxiety was related to his parents’ volatile marriage; he felt torn between loyalties and lived in constant fear of divorce. During my counseling sessions with the parents, we discussed ways to improve their husband-wife relationship, and they successfully put our discussions into practice.
