"Tinky" The Therapy Dog
Tinky is eager to meet clients and if they welcome him he will stay till they ask him to go lay down. I do have clients that do not need Tinks as a part of their therapy and he will stay away in that case. I have found that often when someone comes to therapy opening up to a therapist one on one is a little intimidating and with Tinky, he is there to ease the transition that we often need for a successful therapeutic session. With Tinky's help he is there to facilitate the opening of thoughts and feelings which naturally occur when the positive energy from a unconditionally loving animal is brought into the setting.
I have used Tinky with all ages and genders of clients, he is comforable with them all and always enjoys meeting a new friend.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding Tinky, please do not hesitate to call or email me.
