Washington is known for the Space Needle, a beautiful observation tower that lets you see the city. Life can be like an observation tower. Sometimes, you may see all of what life has to offer in front of you. Other times, the line to the tower may be crowded and you never get to see it. 

A counselor can be your VIP ticket to getting in front of the line so you can see all of what life has to give you.
