We are sad to report that Herbie passed away on June 12, 2019 after an unexpected and sudden decline related to an undiagnosed immune system condition. He was approximately 12 years old.  He was a rescue dog who became an emotional support dog after overcoming his own traumatic history.  He led a peaceful and content life right up to his last days. We are sad to see him go but also know that he brought much joy and comfort to many and will be fondly remembered. His bio below says it all!

I am an emotional support dog who works with the subtle energies in the field around me to facilitate comfort and relaxation.  I have many years of experience working with depression and anxiety. I am especially sensitive to moods and emotions and use my acute perceptual abilities to tune in to what is needed in the moment, whether that is closeness and contact or space and distance.

I believe you already have what you need inside of yourself to have a meaningful life, to solve and resolve problems, to be joyful and content.  Following nature, I sense your deepest spirit and align myself with you to support you in creating the life you want.

I offer a kind heart, a gentle approach and an open mind to help you with whatever you struggle with.  I often use non-verbal communication to go beyond simple words.  I believe that meaningful connection and respectful engagement are required for self-discovery and resolution of difficult problems.  If you would like to take the next step toward a fuller experience of life and relationship, please call for an appointment.
