PROVIDING ANIMAL-ASSISTED THERAPY IN COUNSELING TO THE DENVER METRO AREA SINCE 2007
AACC's mission is to utilize animal-assisted interactions in conjunction with evidence-based practices in order to improve mental health.
AACC believes that individuals learn best when they are involved and active in the process of change, which is why AACC uses experiential therapy modalities which include the integration of animals, play, music, art. AACC clinicians utilize strengths-based and culturally considerate practices while working with clients. The therapist-client relationship at AACC is open, honest, and welcoming, creating a positive and safe environment for each individual.
Our furry co-therapists come from many different species, including dogs, guinea pigs, rats, cats, mice, and rabbits. All of the animals have been screened by veterinarians, are in good health, and have demonstrated behavior that makes them excellent in their work in therapy.
