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.

Hi There! Having lived through a number of difficult experiences I understand the challenges in continuing to share your vulnerabilities with the world.
