New York is home to the Big Apple itself, New York City. It’s seen as a city of opportunity, and anyone who goes there is destined for great things. However, not everyone gets to live in the city, and sometimes, it feels like you have no opportunities. A counselor can be the person who helps you find your big dream. Find an NY-based counselor and grab a hold of your dreams.
