Mississippi is known for its river boats. Your life can be like a boat. Your boat can drift across the water without a care, or there could be many leaks you need to patch before you sink.

A counselor can be the patches you need to get your boat running again. Talk to a counselor and ride your boat without worry.

We cannot plan for everything that happens to us. We can, however, choose how we are going to respond to those things. Sometimes, life throws you a curve ball that you didn’t see coming and it has left you feeling overwhelmed and anxious.

Maybe life seems like it has become a never-ending cycle of ups and downs, anxiety and depression. Or, do you jus...

Growing up in small rural area of the Mississippi Delta is easy for most people, but for people with anxiety and depression, as an adolescent, life can become difficult. I came from a good Christian home where morals and values were taught from the beginning. Anxiety and depression were issues that were not talked about in the home. It was not until I was in my late twenties that I learned that it was okay to talk about uncomfortable feelings and emotions and it was certainly nothing to be ashamed of. As I began to seek counseling, I was able to learn to bec...
