At New Hope Counseling & Wellness Center, we strive to bring hope, joy, and happiness to people’s lives. We do this through personalized nutrition, eating disorder recovery, sustainable weight loss solutions, and counseling. How does a therapy dog fit into this process?
The answer is quite simple. Animals are often able to connect with people on a deeper level than what is possible through human to human interaction. As a Labrador, Hope has many inherent traits that make it even easier to do this. With her friendly demeanor and sunny disposition, Hope provides comfort, attention, and unconditional love to everyone she meets. These are traits that sometimes speak louder than our own words and actions. They can even promote emotional healing and brighten the darkest of days.
Whether you’re facing the challenges of an eating disorder, seeking a lasting weight management solution, or you just need an emotional pick-me-up, our cheerful therapy dog is ready to help. You might have to pull her away from playing with her cousins Maddie and Huck. Or, she may con you into playing fetch with “Small” and “Blue” (her favorite balls) or hide and seek with “Squeak” and “Orange”. But, rest assured, she’s ready to give you her heart and be the friend you need.
