Pet Therapy


Therapy dogs are known to be a calming presence during therapy. This calming effect can reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, decrease aggression, relieve stress, and diminish agitation in clients. 

You can learn more about therapy dogs at the “Therapy Dogs International” website www.tdi-dog.org. If you would like to make an appointment with Sampson please e-mail alan@owenscounseling.com or call the office at 847-854-4333. Sampson looks forward to meeting you soon.
