I just finished, and I enjoyed it all.
I think you did a very good job with a fully character-driven story. The conversations felt real and convincing, and the character interaction did not feel at all forced. The "quiet", contained nature of the tale, without wider implications beyond the people involved and their personal issues, was refreshing and the limited number of characters really helped focus attention on the issues at hand. The emotion is communicated well, too- I think you are quite a skilled writer.
The counseling is also very
convincing. I agree with The Badger
- your tale is better than TNG usually was with this.
