Who You Callin’ Crazy?!

Who You Callin’ Crazy?!

Welcome to our unique mental health podcast! Licensed therapist, Juliet Kuehnle, uses humor and real talk to dive into the stories of interesting people you (want to) know. Of course there will be therapy tips (because, let's be serious, we all need them!), but mostly these conversations are a glimpse into the vulnerability of the people you might think "have it all together." We want to elevate and normalize the dialogue around mental health and erase the stigma so we can all own our humanness and maybe even proudly claim, "Yep, I go to therapy!"
