February 2023 - How Pets Impact Our Mental Health
Kaylee is joined by Shannon Kopp, ERC Pathlight National Recovery Advocate and founder of SoulPaws Recovery Project, to discuss all the ways in which animals can positively impact our mental health - teaching us how to be more self-compassionate, present, and connected to the world around us. Throughout this chat, they will share authentic and profound stories recounting how each of their lives have been uniquely impacted by animals --especially their pets.
The hosts’ and guest speaker’s beloved pet companions – Charlie and Bella – will make live appearances (dog attention spans and personalities willing)! Anyone who appreciates animals will be able to relate, and appreciate these conversations – whether you currently have, have lost, or desire a meaningful relationship with animals. You don’t want to miss this fun, real, and downright heartwarming experience.
