In the old days, the path the traders took in order to make their living was the Oregon Trail. It was a rough journey, but those who could make it to the end felt rewarded. In life, it can be a bit like a trail. It’s smooth sailing, and then something happens to make the journey difficult. 

A counselor can help cross any trail life has to offer, and they can benefit you by being your guard to pass the trail as quickly as possible.
