Answer: In my experience this plant is not tightly symmetrical as it is a bit relaxed or arching in habit, but it is normally more or less balanced with even growth all around -- assuming it is grown in a full sun or half day of sun. (The times I have seen it lean it has been in shade and has tried to reach for the sun.) It shouldn't look like it is about to fall over. You could trim it back a little bit to restore a more normal look, but be aware that trimming it now will remove fruiting wood for this fall's display. You can also trim it in the early spring, trim to remove any winter damage and then as needed to encourage a more balanced look. Cut just above or outside a node to encourage branching. Enjoy your Callicarpa, these are lovely plants!
