Everything is bigger in Texas. The Lone Star State is home to tall hats and rodeos. Your life can feel like a rodeo. Sometimes, you can keep hold of the raging bull and grab it by the horns. Other times, the bull can trample all over you. 

A counselor can be the person who latches onto the bull, never lets go, and tames the beast. Speak to a counselor today.
