  • Ruby
    RubyTherapy Dog / Very Good Girl

    Meet Ruby! Everyone she meets seems to have a different guess about what kind of dog she is. One thing most people do agree about is that she has a very calm temperament and sweet nature. Ruby was adopted by Emily Staples’ family when she was about a year old and worked very hard to learn great therapy dog manners and to understand how she can use her wonderful personality to help clients in Emily’s therapy practice. She was so happy to become certified through Therapy Dogs International and as a Canine Good Citizen because now she gets to come to work with Emily and do what she loves most– help people feel calm
    and relaxed. Ruby has a good ability to sense what others need, whether that is for her
    to cuddle right next to them or just nearby on her bed. Belly rubs and ear scratches are her favorite things ever!

    If you have any concerns, allergies, or questions about Ruby, please let Emily know. We want you to feel comfortable and are happy to make any accommodations needed. Ruby is a very good girl and is certainly excited to meet you!

    • My doctor referred me to Becky because of the positive outcomes she's had with other patients. It is not a short drive for me, but it's worth it. Becky's expertise in eating issues has far exceeded the expectations I had for counseling when I first started. She makes me feel safe talking about my relationship with food, but has also helped me realize that the most important way to work toward a healthy life is to heal the relationship with myself first.
