She is a teacher. She is living this reality. You are neither a teacher nor a school counselor. You are not living this reality.
Guess which one of you has a more realistic, fact-based grasp on the matter?
I am a parent and was a student. I have experience on that side of the table. I'm sure many schools handle things differently and the roles of a counsellor could be different in various schools.

In my high school you had to be the one to engage the counsellor. They never checked in with you until senior year of high school to see if they could help with the decision of colleges, etc. By April of your senior year you should have that already figured out. So, I wouldn't rate those counsellors good at all. They were they for the administration, not the students.

When my son went to school, the counsellors met with the students on a regular basis, not just when they were in trouble. They really were counsellors in the true sense.

That was in a better school district and many, many years later. The difference could be how a school defines itself and whether it educates students or is herding them on to graduate and also could be a situation in between those two extremes.
