She identifies as a 1.5-generation, Asian-American woman and is in her early 30’s. She currently lives in the Bay Area, CA as a project manager at a tech company and has been in her industry for nearly ten years. Melody works long nights and occasional weekends to finish projects at work. She strives to perform at top productivity and easily becomes frustrated and anxious when she makes mistakes and is unable to deliver her work at her best.

    Melody enjoys going to the gym, running at her local trail, and rock climbing. But, she often has a difficult time finding the motivation to engage in these activities on a consistent basis. She is currently single and has been dating around for almost a year and has not found the right person to commit to a relationship with. Melody mostly spends time with her coworkers outside of work and rarely speaks with her parents, who live in another part of the Bay Area. She wonders if there is more to her life than work and wants to pursue her passion in graphic design.

She currently lives in San Diego, CA as a human resource manager for a venture capitalist organization and has been in her career for five years. Alice recently moved away from her parent’s home in San Francisco and is adjusting to life transitions, which include re-establishing boundaries with her immigrant parents. Her mother often calls her worried about her and often asks when she will move back to the area, get married, and have children.

    Alice often feels stressed with her own interactions with her mother and wishes to establish boundaries with her. She often experiences the same interactions with her own partner of three years, as she often does not feel heard by him. Alice and her partner engage in verbal arguments weekly and feel that she needs to establish better boundaries with them too. She has a close group of friends she leans on when she feels overwhelmed, but most of them are back in San Francisco. Alice is yearning to find a space with women who share similar experiences.

    Melody and Alice seek to live an authentic life and to be surrounded by a community who are supportive of their experiences.

Both Melody and Alice wish to gain coping skills and manage their time to incorporate self-care practices into their daily routine. They desire to gain self-compassion within themselves and for other people.
