Meet Mr. Murphy, a therapy dog who accompanies Jennifer during select counselling appointments, and is an integral part of the treatment process.
Jennifer finds that having Mr. Murphy working with her, helps to create a more relaxed rapport between the client and herself.
Establishing a calm environment for counselling is important to her clients who are often under great stress and anxiety when they seek her services.
By incorporating animal assisted therapy into her counselling appointments, Jennifer helps to promote improvement in the social, emotional, and/or cognitive functioning of her clients.
