A friendly message from Dr. Juggins:
Treat therapy as self-care and a resource for growth and healing. There is no right or wrong approach to healing. Fun fact about me: I do not like using the word "disorder." Not everything is a mental illness. If you were ever diagnosed with a "disorder", remember, you are functioning with challenges but you are not "disordered." I have an immense passion for helping my clients and I look forward to walking with you on your healing journey.
