Animal Assisted Therapy
Here at Solutions Counseling we value holistic approaches which is why we have incorporated Animal Assisted Therapy into our practice. Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) helps improve a patients’ mental, physical, social, and emotional functioning with the aid of an animal. Solutions Counseling offers two options of AAT: Canine and Equine.
Tucker completed his therapy training in 2014 at the Red River North Obedience School. He currently tests with Pet Partners every two years to ensure he is still qualified to work in therapy sessions. Ashley and Tucker completed their Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate through Oakland University. Tucker can only be used in counseling by handler and Counselor, Ashley Willits.
