This is the type of counselor I would want to be! Working with families and youth sounds good to me; better than addiction counseling. Although there is still emotional drama that comes up when working with families and children with behavioral problems, I like helping people fix their troubles and work on solutions. While reading this article, it didn't seem like a difficult position to land either; a Bachelor's degree in social services is required and a Master's is preferred, which is what I had found out in my research of careers. Most jobs also require 2 years of experience so that must be job shadowing or assisting another counselor.
