Question: Given your role as an Executive Director of a trust company, what do you think of counseling for special needs trust beneficiaries? Is it a practical thing for them to consider?
Answer: Personally, and professionally, I believe counseling can make a great difference in a person’s life. Counseling can help a person to heal from trauma, overcome personal obstacles, and deal with life, in general. Counseling definitely is a practical request to be paid from a beneficiary’s special needs trust.
