Jessica is a 17-year-old rising senior who has enjoyed a great relationship with her school counselor throughout high school. The school counselor has celebrated the many successes and helped her cope through the various challenges she has faced during high school. Jessica started dating Tom during her sophomore year and they have become one of the more prominent couples in the school. Both are successful athletes, talented students, and well-liked by their peers. They have a large network of friends and are popular students with the faculty as well.
Over the past few months, Jessica began to share that Tom behavior was changes. He had become very jealous and had embarrassed her on multiple occasions when she was talking to other guys, even when such conversations related only to school activities and class assignments.

When she came to the counselor’s office today, she was crying. The couple had gone for coffee before school and gotten into a fight, he slapped her, and left her at the coffee shop. He made her walk to school. When she arrived she received a text from him apologizing, asking her to forgive him.
