Others have given good advice about additional schooling and job availability. I'd like to suggest that you also research school counseling and learn exactly what counselors do. You mention being a listener for students, but in my (non-counselor) experience, that's probably the least of what they do. At the schools where I've worked, counselors also have been involved in admin stuff, lots of paperwork and class scheduling, interventions, helping to arrange assessments, etc. It's not just being a friend to students. Being informed and realistic about the job will help you decide whether the extra education and certification are worth it. Good luck with your decision!
