Alaska is a beautiful state with a lot to offer. The cool temperatures make it great for those who don’t like the sun too much. The beautiful Northern Lights shine rays that are breathtaking to watch. There is ice and snow everywhere you go. 

But sometimes, your life can be like Alaska in the worst aspects. Cold, dark, empty. If your mental health resembles any of those aspects, it’s time to talk to a counselor and make your life shine brighter than those northern lights.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I live and practice in the state of Alaska. I have a wonderful plant. This plant is very tenacious-it has to thrive in a room filled with Alaskan light during the winter, so that means it has to work hard to find enough solar energy to grow and thrive. Recently I noticed the plant was stretching out its stems and leaves far past its location-up to the window to find light on its own. I was inspired to watch the plant seek and find what it needed, and that is exactly the way I think about therapy-both in the inspiri...
