Healing with Animals

Shantah the Therapy Cat

Pictured above with his favorite blanket.

   As part of my therapy practice, I have integrated animal assisted therapy.  Studies have shown that animals provide a calming presence, can help to create a therapeutic and healing environment and foster an overall sense of emotional wellbeing. 


    Meet Shantah. He is a friendly, gentle and affectionate gray-haired tabby cat. Shantah is available to join us in our sessions to assist in reducing stress, calming anxiety and providing much needed comfort to life’s difficult situations.
