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 come from a clinical mental health background with expertise in motivational interviewing, mood disorders, and grief and loss. When others might ask why would you want to work with Dan?
