Colorado is the home of beautiful, snowy mountains, where every day is a new skiing adventure. Sometimes, your life can be like a ski course. One day, you’re skiing down the mountain smoothly and wavering around all the obstacles life throws at you. Then the next day, you tumble and come crashing down the mountain. 

A counselor can be the ski instructor who will teach you how to go past all the trees and other obstacles life throws at you.
