Nebraska is known for Chimney Rock, a beautiful mountain shaped like, well, a chimney. Your own mental state can be like a mountain. Either you’re at the top and have conquered the world, or you’re struggling to get up the mountain and need help. 

A counselor can be like a mountain climber who knows what they’re doing. In a pinch, they can carry you to the top and help you reach your goals.
