What Is Animal Assisted Therapy?

Animal Assisted Therapy is a unique and engaging form of therapy where animals become a part of your healing journey, working alongside your clinician to achieve your therapeutic goals. Whether you’re fully aware of your goals or still exploring the changes you wish to make in your life, Animal Assisted Therapy offers a comforting and supportive path. We begin at a point that feels right for you, utilizing the presence of animals to facilitate emotional connection, reduce stress, and enhance your ability to process and reflect. This form of therapy enriches the therapeutic environment, offering non-judgmental support and a unique way to explore your emotions, overcome challenges, and learn new coping strategies. It’s tailored to your needs, ensuring a deeply personal and impactful experience, where animals help guide you toward self-discovery and emotional growth in a way that feels authentic and nurturing.

We charge $165 per 50 minute session. We believe financial circumstances should never inhibit a person’s ability to receive therapeutic services. Therefore, we also see clients with a reduced fee arrangement in place. These sessions range in price depending on what a client can afford and are renewed on a quarterly basis or when your financial circumstances change.
