RONTU, Animal-Assisted Therapy

Our Downtown location offers animal-assisted therapy! Our affectionate office pup Rontu is 7 years old. He is a certified Psychiatric Support Animal, and his part-time presence in the clinic is for clients who need emotional connection that sometimes can be difficult to find with other humans because of trauma, social anxiety, intense emotions or avoidance of connection with people. Sometimes animals can reach people in special ways. Rontu is an Australian Shepherd/Poodle mix, hypoallergenic, and does not shed. He's good for cuddles or just to be a quiet presence in the room. And of course, he's a sucker for kids and teens. Rontu has a kitchen/break room he can take naps and bake cookies in if a client prefers their session not be heard by doggie ears, but we promise: Rontu is a great listener. Rontu will sometimes give an alerting announcement when new friends arrive at the waiting room door
