Louisiana is known for its Mardi Gras celebration and for its jazz. Your mental health can be like a jazz band. Sometimes, it’s fast-past and is always changing. Other times, its slower and more somber. 

A counselor can be a part of your jazz band and making sure that your tune is as strong as they come.
