    counselor, psychologist or anything like those. I'm so interested in psychology and I don't care if I'm just a high school counselor it's just something I really want to do.

    I need help. This doesn't involve myself,

    but I'd like someone to vent with and could possibly diagnose a family member of mine. It scares me on what she's doing and I need help. Maybe just someone to tell me what they think is going on. Just something to lead me. Thank you, and please contact me if you can help.

    I want to be an art therapist specifically

    or a marriage counselor, but while I was thinking too much I noticed what's the point? People don't take others advice or try to even practice it. I like helping people, but it doesn't seem like sitting in a chair listening to people's problems without a single change is worth...
