Counseling teens at Fenway High School and adults at Trinity Boston Counseling Center means providing a low-cost opportunity for much needed one-on-one support and guidance. Our clients come with both tremendous pain and great wisdom, and offering them time, presence and compassion to sit with their feelings can help unearth the wisdom that lies within. One client recently said, “You are the role model I never had at home, and I am so grateful…” Another told me, “Our time together goes by so fast, I wish an hour of work went by so quickly!” These comments are the most profound reward for many hours of dedicated work with young people. Giving to the Counseling Center and Trinity Boston Foundation gives the gift of compassionate presence and therapy to underserved people in our city.
