Clients who choose an in-person appointment may elect to also benefit from my therapy dog, Puzzle. Puzzle was chosen as therapy dog to visit hospice patients. She is 11 years old, hypoallergenic, and the size of a miniature Poodle (she’s actually a Schnoodle!). She is extremely responsive and often knows instinctively just what a person needs. Many studies have shown that contact with animals can be calming, and even lowers blood pressure. I have certainly reaped the benefits myself, having lived with Puzzle now for over a decade.
