As a parent, it can be difficult to watch your teen struggle with depression and anxiety. It’s important to know that seeking therapy can be a valuable tool in helping your teen navigate these challenges. At Outside the Norm Counseling, we offer a unique approach to therapy that includes the use of our therapy dog, Scout.
Scout is a sheepadoodle, a breed known for their gentle and affectionate nature. Having a therapy dog in session can provide a number of benefits for your teen. For one, dogs are known to reduce stress and anxiety, which can help your teen feel more comfortable and open during therapy sessions. Additionally, therapy dogs like Scout can help to create a calming and supportive environment, which can be especially helpful for teens who may be feeling overwhelmed or isolated.
In addition to the benefits of having a therapy dog in session, there are a number of positive things to know about sheepadoodles. For one, they are hypoallergenic, which means that they are a great option for families with allergies. They are also known for their intelligence and trainability, which makes them great companions for therapy work. Sheepadoodles are also known for their loyalty and affection, which can be especially helpful for teens struggling with feelings of loneliness or isolation.
At Outside the Norm Counseling, we believe that therapy should be a safe and supportive space for your teen to explore their thoughts and feelings. With the help of Scout, we strive to create an environment that is both calming and engaging, allowing your teen to feel comfortable and supported throughout the therapy process.
