I am sorry to hear this;
A guidance counselor is privy to private information and it is expected that this information will only be released if justified/necessary.
An aggrieved parent can bring suit on behalf of the minor, alleging breach of trust and invasion of privacy.
Damages are typically pain and suffering (emotional damage) and/or punitives.
For punitives to be awarded (they are designed to punish the defendant and deter others from similar misconduct) one needs generally to prove malice.
In order to prevail on a breach of trust, one needs to establish that the defendant was in a position of trust and violated that trust;
for a privacy suit, one needs to prove that one had a reasonable expectation regarding privacy as to the subject matter, and that the defendant publicized (written or oral) that information.

No attorney client relationship is created as this is general legal information, not advice; and a personal attorney should be hired if one wishes specific legal advice for their personal situation.
