If you’ve visited our offices recently, you may have noticed some new signs on our front door and reception area.

Introducing the newest (and furriest) member of our SCFF staff, Payton!


Payton is a very sweet black Labrador retriever that has been professionally trained and has received certification through Therapy Dogs International. We are very excited to have her on the team!

Therapy animals can help with many things, including:

– clients who are struggling to “open up”
– reducing stress and anxiety in a session
– to assist in teaching social skills

Not a “dog person?” Not to worry. Payton will be kept in dedicated spaces to minimize unwanted interactions and for clients with allergies.

Clients who are interested in learning more can ask their therapists for more details and scheduling. Welcome to Saratoga Center for the Family, Payton!
