About Koa – The Canine Counselor


Koa the Canine Counselor – Instagram #Julia_and_Koa

Koa’s name means brave and fearless in Hawaiian and he certainly is! He is also sweet and loves to give therapy tips and Koa’s quote of the day through his Instagram page. A Portuguese Water dog, Koa was born in August 2021 and is pursuing his canine credentials as a psychiatric service dog focusing on PTSD interventions and in the meanwhile, is the office therapy dog. He joined Global Shores Counseling practice as a valued team member – and occasional disruptive team member. Assisting therapy with children and adults – clients find a little more joy and Aloha (love) when Koa comes on the scene.
