counseling: The Hunger

It finally hit me tonight, as I was in a counseling session, how much responsibility I have to my clients. I realize that this is the "well, no shit" statement of the century, but I've never felt the urgency of this statement before. Every moment counts with some of these clients, so I'm honor bound to be ready to go where they need to go. I'm always prepared, but I now feel this hunger to know more for them, to give them the best treatment possible.

I'm excited. I've crossed into another level of professionalism. Last summer, it was enough that I thought of myself as a counselor instead of a student playing counselor. Now I feel the need to be an awesome counselor. Not a small difference at all.
