I am MS student in Mental Health Counseling. I need to interview an mental health counselor but every interview has fallen through. Could anyone help me with some questions

When someone asks you how being a mental health counselor is different from being a social worker or psychologist, what do you tell them?

Can you describe what a normal day looks like for you as you do your job?

What court cases, public policies, and/or state laws direct what you do as a counselor? What regulations govern your activities and practice, particularly those that pertain to insurance and Medicaid?
What theory(ies) inform your practice and why?
How does understanding and respecting multiculturalism help you as a counselor?
How does your knowledge of human growth and development inform your practice?
How do you use assessments to help you with client case conceptualization?
Talk about your experiences with referring clients for psychotropic medications. What advice might you give me?
what kinds of provisions do you or does your agency make for emergency response management? Talk about a time when you had to respond to a natural disaster or some other large-scale crisis. If you never have encountered one, talk about a time when you had to respond to a client-crisis.
What is the role of accountability in your counseling practice? In what ways are you accountable and how do you address that accountability?
Reflect on how you determine when you need to seek consultation or supervision. Can you provide me with a specific example of each?
How have you engaged in advocacy (for clients, for profession)? If so, what did that involve and how did it go?
What are the most significant personal development issues you face as a counselor? How have you add
