Not a week goes by that I don't talk to my clients about the need to set and maintain boundaries.

For many this is a new habit and it takes a while to get this right.
Setting boundaries is like building any habit. The more you exercise this, the stronger it becomes. Once you strengthen your boundary setting muscles, along comes someone to challenge your boundary. Don't let this surprise you.
