Free Canine-Assisted Therapy for 130 people

68,000 adolescents in Missouri have Major Depressive Disorder
20% of Missouri's population has a mental illness
 
We are facing higher rates of mental illness than ever before, now is the time to think outside of the box! We believe that counseling should be more than just talking! We incorporate advanced technology for EMDR, heart rate variability monitor programs, or canine- assisted therapy depending on the needs of the individual.  Research proves that having a canine present in therapy interventions reduces stress, anxiety depression and PTSD symptoms. It also improves longer term results of emotion stabilization. We offer our programs to ages 9 to adults, serving individuals committed to life change while balancing intense symptoms.

Our certified therapy dog Chance is a rescue pup, found hungry and abandoned in the street.  Now Chance is providing safety, security and symptom management for our clients in sessions.  He loves being pet, playing tug of war, and he takes dog treats for payment.  It is our goal this year to not charge any clients that cannot afford treatment this year and give them 14 free therapy sessions to change their lives whether or not the session includes Chance. 

Your donation will aid in changing the lives of 130 individuals who want therapy, need therapy skills to optimize their lives, and yet do not have the funds to complete treatment. Help us be change agents in enhancing therapy experiences and changing one life at a time. Our aim is for longer-term results by helping our clients to manage the symptoms in their bodies and the thoughts in their minds!

Please pass along our cause, donate $5 or $5,000, because every penny counts toward our goal!
