(Alex) is a friend of mine since 7th grade. He is shy, quite, smart, independent, has a lot of potential, not really social with school and loves soccer. Anyways, we were close somewhat, once we came to high school we kind of drifted apart because I did not have him for any classes and we rarely saw each other. He used to come to me all the time and ask about the class I had and what we did. It was every single time, I did not notice. It suddenly stopped but I was not much in notice.

You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
