Aloha! Hawaii is the ultimate vacation state. Beautiful beaches, volcanoes, and so many islands to explore. If you live here, every day is a vacation. 

 

However, sometimes your mental health feels like a volcano ready to explode. If you’re hot headed, or are as blue as the ocean surrounding Hawaii, a counselor can help you get back to your roots.
