    What are the counselor's limits?
    Unfortunately, I am not able to provide the following services to your child:
    Testifying in court in child-custody matters
    Providing intensive long-term counseling services for your child

    Limits of Confidentiality
    One of the most important parts of being a school counselor is being able to talk to students about personal things.  Most of what students tell me can be kept confidential, but I am required to violate that confidentiality if a student tells me one of the following things:
    If he or she is planning to hurt himself or herself
    If he or she is planning to hurt someone else
    If a child is being abused or neglected
