Michigan is known for its Great Lakes and for Kellogg Cereal. Your life can be compared to a bowl of cereal. Sometimes, the cereal is great and a part of a balanced breakfast. Other times, you forgot the milk, or the cereal gets too soggy. 

 

A counselor can be like the best breakfast you’ve had, giving you motivation and the nutrition you need to start the day. Pour yourself a heaping bowl of good mental health today.

Life is a journey – It brings together beauty, joy, sorrows, trauma, and more challenges than we could ever anticipate. We come into this life needing to be loved, protected, and nurtured. I believe that doesn’t change as we go throughout our lives, but many of us experience situations and relationships that shake us to our core. Often, we come out asking who we are, where we are going, and why we exist. It can often be helpful to have someone present with us in our pain, sitting with us as we process and seek growth. I believe in holistic care, looking at y...
