Kansas is known for its private aircraft manufacturers. The state of your mental health can be just like a private airplane. It can soar high and smoothly above the sky, or it can be a bit turbulent. In dire situations, it may end up crashing. 

A counselor can be your perfect mental copilot, making sure you’re soaring high above the rest and leading you to your destination.
