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.
