    It takes a lot of courage for an individual to ask for help when it comes to one’s emotional well-being. These days it is easy to put our emotions and feelings in the back seat and forget how important it is to take care of our mental health.

    Clients come to me when there is stress in their family. Maybe one person is struggling with an issue and needs some extra support. Maybe the whole family can use some practice communicating in healthy ways with each other.

    I may be a mix of two working dogs like Kevin said, but I am a fancy girl. I have long eyelashes and love to prance around. I’ll do some tricks if you have really yummy treats, else I rather just dance around and have you tell me how pretty I am.
