Animal Assisted Therapy
Animal Assisted Therapy adds the elements of playfulness, humor and lightness to the therapeutic process and can be helpful to clients of all ages. Recent research has found therapy dogs provide unconditional emotional support and companionship in session, facilitating social interactions and helping therapy clients embrace the process. Ellis Group Counseling has our very own therapy-dog-in-training, a sweet Bernedoodle named Sullivan. Emily Ellis offers sessions with and without Sullivan for adults and children both.
Play Therapy values the power of play in allowing the child to express themself and communicate in session. The same way that adults use words, research has shown the therapeutic benefit in children communicating through their play. This gives therapists more insight to the child and allows more effective treatment planning and conceptualization. Providers at Ellis Group Counseling are specially trained and Registered Play Therapists ready to help you help your little ones as young as age 3.
