Barkley

Barkley is Chris’s Labrador retriever, and the only four-legged clinician at Kelly Counseling and Consulting. He can often be found around the waiting room, and typically sits in on sessions with Chris. His therapeutic approach consists of showing off a toy for the first minute of a session, and then sleeping on the floor. While he isn’t yet old enough to take the test for therapy dog certification, he plans to do so. If you are allergic to dogs or otherwise uncomfortable around them, please let us know! While Barkley is very friendly, we don’t want his presence to be a distraction or bother to you.
