When I lost the counseling program the only other degree the faculty really pointed me to would prepare me for behind the scenes "leadership or teaching positions in the social services" since I seemed to struggle with the direct care aspect of the counseling degree. Their list links to my school, but here's what they said people with the masters have gotten jobs doing (locations edited)

Assistant Director, University Career Services
University Learning Specialist
University Academic Advisor
University Instructor
Even Start Program Director
Communications Specialist, Hospice
Family Support Coordinator, at a Ministry
Help Me Grow Service Coordinator, and Parents as Teachers Parent Educator
Coordinator, Guest Services/Cancer Resource Library at a hospital
Special Needs Child Care Consultant at a social service agency
Social Worker, Child Protective Services, Dept. of Job and Family Services
Guardian ad Litem, Domestic Relations Court,
Service Coordinator, Help Me Grow,
Family Advocate, Transitional Housing
Case Manager, Volunteers of America

Do any of these sound like they might work for you? You would be doing something meaningful without really interacting that much with people who don't want to be there and NO counseling or psychiatric care required. This would be an M.A. in Human Development and Family Studies, your school might have this or something similar.
