🐾 About Me:

Greetings! I'm Annie, the resident support dog and bundle of joy at Brighter Sky Counseling. As a 3-year-old Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix, I bring an endless supply of energy, love, and intuition to everyone around me. Rescued by Kendra Herlyn and forever grateful, I've made it my mission to ensure that everyone I meet knows they deserve a chance at happiness.

🐾 My Role:

While I might not have a formal therapy dog certification, I have a PhD in empathy and a master's in cuddles. My natural ability to sense emotions and bring calm to any situation makes me a perfect fit for Brighter Sky Counseling. Whether you need a gentle nuzzle, a happy tail wag, or just someone to listen, I'm your girl.

🐾 Hobbies:

My days are filled with adventures, from playing with my pack to indulging in peanut butter treats (a Kong filled with peanut butter is my idea of heaven!). I'm an avid explorer, whether it's a new trail on a camping trip or the depths of your emotions. But above all, my ultimate hobby is collecting belly rubs — just show me a hand, and I'll show you where it fits best on my belly.

🐾 My Promise:

With every wag of my tail and each gentle paw on your lap, I promise to offer a safe space for your feelings to surface. I'm here to remind you that joy can be simple and healing can be as comforting as a warm lap to lie on. Let me be your steadfast companion on your journey to well-being.

🐾 A Note from Kendra:

"Annie's presence in sessions has been nothing short of miraculous. Her instinctive understanding of human emotions and her boundless love make her an invaluable member of our team. Annie embodies the spirit of Brighter Sky Counseling — a place where everyone is welcomed, understood, and supported."
