Animal Assisted Therapy

Animal Assisted Therapy has been proven to lower BP, HR and Six neurotransmitters that influence mood have been documented to release after a 15-minute or more interaction with animals. AAT is incorporated in all aspects of my practice when it is appropriate for the client. I have a 7 yr old Curly Coated Retriever names Sophie, keep reading to learn a little more about her.


Our Process

We are a St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Team. Sophie has the ability to sense when a human is in emotional distress (most animals do, but some are better at their response) Sophie aids me in building rapport with clients and putting them at ease so that they are better able to open up about their situation. I offer to work with clients in their home, and if possible I take clients out for a walk/play with Sophie where they can relax and more comfortably open up than they sometimes can in the traditional office setting.
