Dogs can provide humans with a significant amount of emotional relief. I have found it to help greatly in my sessions, as the client leans on the dog for comfort and security. As a result, lowering a client’s level of stress and anxiety.

Raspberry is a registered Emotional Service Animal (ESA) and certified Pet Therapy Dog. English Cream Golden Retrievers are known for being very friendly, calm, affectionate, loyal, and loving. And as a result, she makes you feel loved, demonstrating what a healthy relationship should feel like.

Raspberry loves to greet clients at the front door and upon your request, she’ll even stay in the room with you for your therapy session. Usually, she ends up sleeping and occasionally she’ll offer a snore that gives the room a more casual and familiar feeling. She’s a great distraction and grounding tool when heavy topics come up, making them a lot easier to talk through. And if you’re in the mood, you can even sit on the floor and play with her.

She can make anyone smile and will make your entire office visit a lot easier. You’ll get to see her happy face before and after your appointment. She helps you learn what it feels like to be loved, she never judges, and she always looks forward to your next visit.
