You should tell the counselor about all of it, sincerely listen and be willing to try what they may offer as a solution. There is no reason whatsoever why you shouldn't be able to talk to a counselor about your problems if you aren't getting any support from within your family.

I totally agree with Rob. Your father has made a choice to live with your mother's illness in a particular way. It's ok if you can't do the same. It doesn't mean you don't love her, or him. Talk to the counselor. Mental illness, like any chronic illness, takes it toll on families. You have every right to have your own breaking point. It's ok to get help.
