"We had a complicated case, where different households didn't agree on whether a child was transgender. The child was telling one house they were trans (my house), and telling the other house (my ex) that they were not. Janet took their side, and when one of my children came to me crying saying that their dad has to give me "all their money" it turns out Janet told him to tell her that! WTF! She never told me she advised him to go against the parenting plan, which clearly states that the kids should never be told about the financial or custody arrangement! That's not just stupid, it's DAMAGING! She has a master's degree (somehow), for god's sake. We went in front of a Commissioner for contempt because he violated the parenting plan, and the Commissioner agreed with me, that she should have NEVER told him to say that to our daughter. How damaging. Then I find out that Janet told my ex that I "may have Munchausen" and she should "call CPS"... what the hell? Because my kid is telling me he's trans, I should have CPS called? Are we living in the dark ages? \r
Keep your family FAR FAR FAR FAR away from her. She's dangerous. I'm filing a complaint with the dept of health. She needs to not have children (or anyone) in her care."
Counseling is a type of professional guidance for handling problems in life. There are many types of counselors, and they serve an incredibly wide variety of people with all kinds of different needs. There are general counselors, marriage and family counselors, school and student counselors, career and vocational counselors, religious counselors, and gerontological counselors specifically for the elderly.
In all cases, counseling works when the client and the counselor talk to each other and develop a trusting relationship. The counselor listens respectfully to the client’s problems. Then the two together work on identifying goals, increasing coping skills to overcome any troubles, and improving useful skills such as communication. The goals of counseling will be different for each person, but generally they include an increased sense of well being, decreased distress and anxiety, resolved crisis, and increased ability and function in daily life.
