To become a counselor, you need four years of college (a Bachelors Degree). To become a licensed therapist, you need to obtain a Masters degree (5-7 years of college).

There are two basic routes to become a geneticist. You can become a medical doctor and specialize in genetics, or you can get a PhD in Genetics. If you go the medical doctor route, it would take a minimum of 11 years after high school. If you go the PhD route, it would take about 8 years after high school.

There are quite a few different college classes you must take to become a counselor. You must take many psychology courses for example.
