Dawn is the founder and owner of Dawn Wiggins Therapy and Help Towards Hope. She knew she wanted to be a psychotherapist at the age of 12. She can distinctly recall making that decision, at a time when her parents first separated. That watershed moment ultimately led her to earn her master’s and specialist degree from the University of Florida, specializing in marriage and family therapy – a systems approach.  Dawn was attracted to this approach because it taught the philosophy that when one part of a system changes, the entire system is changed.
