Tweetable Quote


What the lack of boundary setting does is it causes all of these other feelings and relational issues, but we often fail to see that it started as a boundary issue in the first place.” - Dr. Cassandra LeClair


“ Some of those boundaries that maybe we had previously set up for ourselves just became nonexistent and then going back to the workforce or getting back to some sort of normalcy, whatever that is, you know, trying to map those old boundaries on your new life is not always gonna work or is difficult.”- Dr. Cassandra LeClair
