My name is Cuzco, and I work with Dr. Stucchi!
Cuzco, Emotional Support Dog
Cuzco has 5 years of experience in mental health. He specializes in caring for children, but also has extensive experience with adults. He has worked with clients who have experienced depression, anxiety and trauma related problems.
Depending on the client’s needs and desires, Dr. Stucchi will sometimes augment her treatments with the addition of her emotional support dog, Cuzco. Dr. Stucchi has found that animals can assist the therapeutic process, and numerous studies have demonstrated their positive benefits. Several benefits of pet therapy include lower blood pressure, reduced anxiety, reduced stress, improved attention span and enhanced self-awareness. Even the simple act of petting a dog initiates an automatic relaxation reflex, provides comfort, and improves focus.
