It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

-Galatians 5:1

Animal Assisted Therapy

The significance of the human-animal bond has garnered not only clinical, but research interest. Research has indicated that our connection with animals, particularly dogs, is historical, neurobiological, social and emotional. Research has shown strong evidence that therapy dogs are helpful for multiple populations in a variety of contexts. Using pets in therapy has been shown to reduce stress, increase rapport, help clients to become more cognizant of emotional reactions and support resiliency in individual and group sessions (Perry, Rubinstein & Austin, 2012).

TELEHEALTH NOTICE!

We are offering both in-office and telehealth counseling appointments. Although we have found that most insurance are considering telehealth a covered benefit at this point, we ask that you please call your insurance company to determine if you have telehealth benefits.

For in-office counseling sessions, we have a COVID-19 protocol that we are following and you will be emailed a copy of the consent form, as part of the intake paperwork when you become an Empowered Life Counseling client.  For specific questions, please feel free to consult your therapist within the practice.
