A friendly message from Dr. Juggins:
Treat therapy as self-care and a tool 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 not your "disorder." Overall, I deeply care about your well-being and look forward to accompanying you on your healing journey.
