Florida is quite the state to talk about. It’s a beautiful state where the sun always shines and there is an adventure around every corner. It’s home to some vast beaches and Disney World, the happiest place on earth. 

However, sometimes you aren’t the happiest person on earth, and no amount of fun seems to change that. That’s when your counselor comes in. A counselor can make your mental health shine like the sun again, and you’ll be as happy as Mickey Mouse waving at the guests at Disney World.
