Teresa is an 80-year old woman who you are seeing in an intake counseling session. You notice she appears disheveled and markedly thin. She came to see you to help her with sudden depression, hopelessness and feeling that life has lost meaning.  She describes herself as a happy and content woman, who has enjoyed life until recently.  Her husband died last year, and due to declining health, Teresa has moved in with her daughter and son-in-law about 8 months ago.  She tells you that her daughter is often too busy to make her lunch, or take her shopping for new clothes or personal items. Quite often the daughter and son-in-law go out for dinner not leaving Teresa anything to eat. Teresa is embarrassed and hurt that her daughter is treating her like this but doesn’t want to make a fuss.
