About our Animal Co-therapists 

We have had some new additions to our office "staff" since we all began working remotely.  On any given day, you may see one of these four-legged friends appear on camera during a teletherapy session, to offer their support, friendship, and a wagging or waving tail.

Gus and Jack are part of Leslie's work-from-home team, while Danger, who is a certified therapy dog, and siblings Wicket and Bebe are working with Camilla.  Lucy is Jennifer's therapy-dog-in-training, who practices by helping her little brother, Linus, learn the ropes. Laura's beautiful cats, Rani and Claude, rule the home office roost.  Amelia's work-from-home buddies are a pair of lively dachsunds named Zelda and Link.  And, Les has three co-therapists: Padre, Taco, and Mulan the kitty. They can't wait to say hello and look forward to welcoming you back when the office reopens for in-person visits!
