They service our school. God knows why; going in for counseling with them made everything worse. The counselor didn't listen to anything I said that didn't match her preconception of me, gathered from a file submitted by someone else. In the end of the 30 minutes or so I had spent with her, it was told it was just in my head or an attitude problem. I had formerly considered going to them because of serious concerns I had had, but I'm so glad I didn't. It would have destroyed me.
