Student going into counseling profession

Mike, I am writing you a question about becoming a counselor. I am heading to graduate school in sport psychology and counseling and I am 28. My concern is that I sometimes feel too young to be a counselor and I worry that I may not be able to empathize with those who are older or who have experienced so much more in their lives than I have. I understand that no one, even counselors, can experience everything at a personal level but there are still many topics that I feel nieve about. Are these feelings common to new students going into this profession?
