Missouri is famous for its Bass Pro shops. Your life can be like a fishing trip. Sometimes, you catch the biggest fish of your life. Other times, the fish gets away, or ends up breaking your line, leaving you hopeless. 

A mental health counselor can be like the best fishing equipment money can buy. If you’re ready to make the big catch, talk to a counselor and see where you can go with your fishing trip.

First and foremost, thank you for being here; I hope you find what you need, whether with me or another therapist on BetterHelp. Life is stressful, and we all need to do our best to stay grounded in our truths and connected to our values. That is a part of what I find important when cultivating strong mental health.
