What if you fall under the "non-functioning" category?

Hi Brooke,

I’m brand new to your program and thought it would help me with some issues I struggle with, namely, overeating and buffering. I was listening to The Model and you described that most of your clients are “functional” in their lives. My mother recently passed away and I am currently in therapy due to complicated bereavement stemming from the enmeshed relationship we shared. I’m concerned that I’ve picked the “wrong” time to start this program due to my grief. I was hoping your program could help me with negative lifelong patterns and act as an adjunct to helping me through my grief process. I’m embarrassed to say that I’m going to be fifty years old, in a few months, and I worry that it’s too late for me to change and “get things right.” I’ve been married for twenty-five years, I am medical professional, and I’ve been a people pleaser all my life. I feel lost and really want to improve my life and find happiness from within.

Thank you,
