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.

Life happens; the effects of loss vary; and the impacts of stress/trauma are more ‘normal’ than most people realize.
