All I can say my counselor trainee has helped me so much. I'm currently working on having my parents understand I am who I am and to see my view points of my lifestyle etc. And being able to talk it out w my counselor is a huge step... It'd be great to see this organization grow and be able to expand as they are growing and really helping.
