We are excited to introduce the newest member of the Flourish team: Diego Montego!
Diego is a mini Bernedoodle puppy that has joined our team to become a service dog for therapy clients. Once he is older and trained, Diego will be happy to provide signals of safety, no judgment, and comfort by utilizing his grounded nervous system and his innate purpose to serve others.
At Flourish! we incorporate attachment and polyvagal theories in our approach to mental wellness and bringing in a therapy dog works beautifully with these two theories.
Be sure to give Diego a follow on his new instagram account .montego.atx
And check out his page on our website, where we explain more about how attachment and polyvagal play a role in our relationship with our four-legged friends:
