Pet Comfort Therapy
Here at Montville Counseling Center we offer pet therapy at no additional cost to you! Pet Therapy can be requested during sessions. Our comfort pet in our practice is Willow, a Pekingese who is small, white and loving. Willow, will sit on the couch and sleep next to our clients, waiting to be petted, and to snuggle.
The benefits of Pet Therapy are that it causes your spirits to be lifted and lessens depression, decreases feelings of isolation as you are comforted. Pet Therapy will assist in encouraging communication through increased socialization and reduced boredom and can lower anxiety. It can help children overcome speech and emotional disorders and promotes physical and emotional recovery.
