Our resident therapy pup-in-training, Lana is a year and a half old golden retriever who loves to meet new people, chew on bones, and take long naps. Lana is sweet, playful, silly, and loving.
Over the past year since meeting her human, Ali Williams-Kurt, MEd, MS, TLMHC, Lana has been in training to be a therapy dog and enjoys interacting with kids, teenagers, and adults. Lana’s favorite foods are peanut butter, carrots, and string cheese. Her favorite games are tug, fetch, and hide-and-seek.
Together Lana and Ali make a therapy team offering Animal Assisted Psychotherapy. Ali is presently working towards her formal certification in this type of therapy. When Lana is a bit older she will also participate in additional training.
Lana (and Ali) would love to meet you and support you in working toward your therapy goals. Please reach out to learn more about our playful pup or to request an appointment with Lana and Ali.

Most of our poor decisions and behaviors that we wish we could re-do are driven by our feelings. In most cases we are probably reacting from an emotion and not even really thinking!
ODD is one of the most common behavioral disorders among kids. Unfortunately, people exhibiting these behaviors are sometimes mislabeled as "naughty" or "bad," which can be damaging.
Regulate your emotions and then engage in co-regulation with your teen from a place of curiosity and compassion.
