Welcome to Animal Assisted Counseling of Indiana
Counseling for Adults, Adolescents and Preteens
Depression and anxiety creates a whirlwind of emotional and behavioral distress no matter who you are. Overthinking, feeling alone, finding a solution to a problem becomes overwhelming when our state of mind is locked into a state of negative or fearful unconscious response. That is where depression and anxiety live. It is stuck in the part of our brain that tricks us into thinking that feeling or replaying negative thought keeps us safe. This tape replayed over and over presents itself to everyone in an individual manner. You can be up all night, thinking and thinking. You can cry with no reason. You can end up in arguments with the people you love. You can think that no matter what you do it is never good enough. Or you can just sleep and isolate hoping things will go away.
I understand that depression and anxiety is difficult to manage and presents as an unchangeable factor in your life. But there are ways to make this madness stop and feel better about yourself, your life, your family, your child. Please don’t stay stuck in a state of being that creates hardship. All thoughts lead to action and all actions lead to how we feel. How we feel effects our actions…
"Dogs have a way of finding a friend who needs them and filling an emptiness we didn't ever know we had."
- Thom Jones
There is help with depression and anxiety. If you are struggling with depression or anxiety there is help. If your child is struggling with depression or anxiety there is help. It just takes the courage to make a new move. To do something different. Remember it is the sameness that keeps you stuck. Making a simple move changes everything. Reach out to talk or set an appointment. These are two steps to move forward and will change everything. Sometimes the best thing to do is not think and just act.

Animal Assisted Counseling is a proven method to decrease depression and anxiety response. Working with a canine therapy partner in treatment decreases the automatic physical response of depression and anxiety while increasing the ability to explore the unconscious triggers that lead to the emotional, behavioral actions.

What we do to enhance one part of our self effects every other part of our life.
