Sweet home, Alabama! It’s a nice southern state to behold. Everyone is hospitable, and there is always some sweet tea you can drink down when you’re feeling blue. 

However, Alabama has its disadvantages. With its mental health system not being as strong as the others, it can sometimes feel like you’re alone in fighting off whatever demons you have. Luckily, there is someone here to help. A counselor from Alabama can make you enjoy the better aspects of the South. Talk to them today.

Many people experience these negative feelings, and it is okay to seek and utilize resources that can assist you during difficult times.

What would it be like for you if you could wake up tomorrow and live the life you always wanted to live? It can be hard to reach out and ask for help.

Twenty years ago, my life was turned upside down when my husband walked out the door, leaving me to raise our two year old daughter and dreams I thought we had built together since our second year in college. I couldn't imagine how I could go on. I couldn't imagine how anyone who'd been though this sort of pain had gone on. But, to my surprise, I did go on, grow, developed new and stronger emotional muscles. And formed a new dream: I wanted everyone to believe they could get there (peace/happiness) from here (pain/anxiety/confusion). So, I went back to school an...
