Animal Assisted Therapy in Counselling

Page being developed, September 16, 2019

I worked in Animal Assisted Therapy with my canine co-therapist, Tyson for 4 years. Tyson was a retired greyhound racer who loved working with people. He was a certified a Saint John Ambulance Therapy Dog. We worked together with persons with disabilities (mental, physical and cognitive). Inspired by Tyson, I founded and was the first President of the Animal Assisted Therapy in Counselling Chapter of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). In 2019, I took on the task of revitalizing the Chapter; I am now the Interim President.
