Hi! I'm Kevin! I'm a brand new Golden Retriever puppy and I'm training to be a Therapy Dog! My dad is Counselor Andrew Hey, MA LPC and he lets me hang out at Reset sometimes. My job is to keep clients company at Reset and reduce stress or anxiety. I'm very calm and quiet, and I love people. Research shows that just spending time with dogs like me can reduce stress and lead to better mental health.
Training and qualifications
I'm still just a puppy, so I'm still learning what it takes to be a therapy dog. I'm starting out with basic obedience training and then I'll start therapy dog training where I will learn even more about being a friendly and calming influence on the humans I spend time with while I am working.
Areas of Special Interest:
My dad's shoes, sleeping, being held, sleeping, playing with humans, and sleeping.
Approach & Clinical Orientation
I usually just act cute and calm and that seems to work pretty well so far.
Fees & Services
Services provided: Emotional support during therapy sessions with my dad or special sessions to just spend time with me.
Insurance & Fees: At this time, I am a fee-for-service provider, which means I do not accept insurance. You may be reimbursed by your insurance company for my services if you choose to request "out-of-network" reimbursement. Please verify the specific requirements for reimbursement with your insurance provider, and I will be happy to provide you with the appropriate receipt, billing codes, and diagnosis needed (insurance will not reimburse if there is no diagnosis).
Payment is due at time of service and I accept cash, check, or credit card payments, including Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards.
My hourly rate is the same as my dad's $60/hr when he works with me and $30/half hour when I do all the work. Limited special rate slots available for those demonstrating financial need. Special rates also available for those working in the creative or performing arts.
I will be adding insurance providers in the near future. This page will be updated accordingly.
