Virginia is known for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. It’s a long bridge that spans quite the distance. Life can be viewed like a bridge. The bridge can take you to your destination, or lead to nowhere. It all depends on what kind of bridge it is. And sometimes, the bridge can be broken and dangerous, leading you to fall. 

A counselor can be the person who keeps your bridge strong and going on the right path. Speak to one today and see where they can lead you.
