Massachusetts is best known for Harvard University, a university where the best and brightest come to learn their place in life. Your life can be just like a university, where either you know what you want to do, or are unsure and spend too much time procrastinating. 

A counselor can be like a university professor, giving you the motivation you need to succeed. Talk to one today and see where your place in life is.
