What should I do?<br /> </em>&ndash; <em>Chandrae*</em></p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p><em>*Names have been changed to protect user privacy.</em></p>
