Animal-Assisted Therapy at The Galvin Growth Group

Galvin Growth Group is proud to offer Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT)!  

AAT is a therapeutic approach that incorporates animals into the psychotherapy process.  Research in AAT has shown that many clients benefit as they become more comfortable and relaxed and are able to make even more progress from the therapeutic experience.  The therapy dog may help to reduce stress, provide feelings of happiness and relief from symptoms, reduce anxiety, and open communication by acting as a facilitator and motivator.  

Several G3 therapists have undergone training specializing in Animal Assisted Therapy and dog handling to be able to offer AAT services with Lexie within their therapeutic processes. AAT can be helpful in almost any therapy session, but can be especially helpful when working through experiences related to anxiety, depression, anger, Autism, ADHD, and many more. 

Therapists that currently have openings with Lexie are Dr. Galvin, Troy Marks II, and Heidi Stevens. Please let us know if you’d like to learn more about Animal Assisted Therapy with Lexie!

Meet Lexie

Lexie is G3’s Certified Therapy Dog.  She is an adorable mini bernedoodle born in the spring of 2021. Lexie loves to engage with clients of all ages and adapts to whatever your comfort level may be.  She has been trained in Animal Assisted Therapy techniques and is credentialed as a Certified Therapy Dog by the Alliance of Therapy Dogs.  Additionally, she has received the honors of Canine Good Citizen (CGC) by the American Kennel Club as well as the Community Canine (CCGA), which is an even higher distinction given by the American Kennel Club. Lexie also returns to the trainer periodically throughout the year to review and continue to sharpen her AAT skills.
