Utah is known for the Great Salt Lake. In life, you may feel a bit… salty at times. You may feel upset about everything, and it feels like nothing can contain it. 

A counselor can be the person who contains your saltiness and allows you to sail across the lake with ease. All you need to do is to speak to a counselor today and see what they can do for you.

I have worked in a myriad of therapeutic settings and it is almost impossible for me to choose a favorite but one thing I know for a surety is I enjoy the one on one interaction the most.
