"It's extremely rewarding to answer a call and help ​a young person ."

Often ​teenagers ​don't know who to call or ​if anyone out there ​can help. A very important part of my job is to ​listen. Once I understand what problems they're facing, then I can give information about what help is available, discussing their options, maybe even offering suggestions that they ​would not have thought of on their own.
