Hello, I am Dr. Eugenia Agard, DBH, LMHC, founder of Healing Understanding Guiding and Supportive Services (HUGS) Therapy Services. ‚Äč I am very passionate about assisting others to regain the ability to rebuild and transform their lives. My approach to therapy is a holistic one as I believe in treating the whole person (mind, body and soul) knowing that they are all connected and shape who we are, and how we feel physically and mentally. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for my patients enabling them to express their concerns without feeling they are being judged. As such, I foster an environment of genuine compassion and concern that helps to strengthen the therapeutic alliance, allowing my patients to be receptive to therapy.
In our society, many are suffering from various conditions, e.g., depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, intrusive negative thoughts, and/or struggling with their sexual orientation. I find working with my patients very rewarding as I see your resilience. I firmly believe in the power of the human spirt, as it propels us to heal and to reclaim what was lost. It is therefore my goal to guide you towards healing and positive solutions that are appropriate and designed for you.
This is an example of a therapy session. Our Therapist approach allows you release your stress and pressure in a non-judgmental setting which in turn allows you to release and heal. At HUGS we provide you with individualize treatment to meet your needs as no one persons situation is alike.
