Therapeutic Pet Sessions

Interactive Therapeutic Pet Sessions

IMG_3271

Serene Waters loves dogs!!!!!! On rainy days or when the surf/ outdoors are not an option due to weather conditions we substitute surf therapy for interactive therapeutic pet groups. Group participants can interact with pets while the group facilitator shares therapeutic curriculum relevant to the clients treatment/ recovery.  Following session clients can share about the benefits of the session, and any other insight they have gained from pet interaction. Our goal with this group is to help reduce cortisol (stress hormone) and increase oxytocin levels to promote a feeling of bonding and connectivity.
