I Don't Want to Talk to My School Counselor. What Should I Do?
I have a problem but don't want to talk to my school counselor because my friends
have all seen her and they say she's no help. What should I do? – Chandrae*
Start by giving your school counselor a chance. Everyone's unique, and some counselors
and students click better than others. It can't hurt to meet with your school counselor
a couple of times to form your own opinion of what she's like.
If you think you need additional help after meeting the counselor, talk to the
counseling office. They might be able to schedule you with a different counselor or
get you the name of an outside therapist. You also can ask your doctor for names of
other therapists, or ask a parent or teacher for help.
