Cookie, Canine Exposure Therapist
Cookie is an important part of the Anxiety Treatment Center staff. She loves working with people and brings a great deal of enthusiasm to her job as an exposure therapist. Her small size and friendly nature make it easy for those who fear dogs to practice overcoming their anxieties.
Cookie is a female “Teddy Bear” dog, a cross-breed between a Bichon Frise and a Shih Tzu. She is very sweet and puts our clients at ease. She assists our human staff in working with patients who have fears about dogs and animals. A devoted companion, she also assists children with autism spectrum disorder and other very shy patients with socialization skills.
We are thankful to have such a sweet, calm animal to help our patients overcome their fears.
