When you think of Idaho, you think of potatoes. There is no question about that. In some ways, the potato is a good representation of life. It’s versatile, and you can do a lot with a potato. You can bake it, fry it, mash it, and do anything you can. 

If your life is like a potato with sprouts, you may feel like you’re destined for failure. A counselor can be the cook you need to help prepare your potato into a tasty dish. Talk to an Idaho-based counselor today.
