Therapy Dog

Meet Marley! He is the sweetest English Bulldog you will meet and a great asset to the healing process.

Marley is an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). He has grown up at Northern Star. Through his years of development, he has learned to emotionally and physically support clients as they attend therapy. He is an emotional barometer and can often sense when clients need additional support.

As an ESA animal, he serves as a physical touchstone for clients as they experience and release challenging emotions. His presence soothes many clients. He assists clients in remaining mindful as work they work toward goals. He also allows clients to change their focus in session and take a "brain break" when needed. He loves cuddles, cheese, sloppy kisses, kiddie swimming pools and grain-free "cookies." Let him assist you in your therapy journey today!
