Alina’s Story: From Trauma Survivor to Healing Guide
Life can turn upside down in an instant. For Alina, everything changed the day she and her husband experienced a life-altering accident.
They say your life’s most difficult paths lead you to your most important callings.
And that’s when Exhale & Paws began.
Navigating life through the effects of trauma and PTSD, Alina turned to alternative methods of healing. She discovered the power of movement therapy and brainspotting for her own recovery, igniting a passion for healing from within.
It all came together the day her therapist recommended Animal-Assisted Therapy. In just one exhale, Alina met Bachelor: Her built-in bestie and companion.
The “Paws” to her Exhale.
After hours and hours of trauma-informed education, practice, and training, Alina now helps guide those from the pain of the past to the peace of the present.

Founder & Philosophical Meditation Guide
Hey there! I'm Bachelor... first of all I want to thank you for stopping by my site. Feel free to sniff around and check out our blog page. I'm sure you are curious to know why I keep referring to everything as mine. Well, the way I see it... none of the content on this site is possible without my Pawesome Pup presence.
Here's the quick version of our story...
My mom and dad were involved in a traumatic pedestrian accident. Her therapist recommended she get a pup to help them walk outside again.
Mom started training me at home with the coolest online puppy school...and I started training her in return. I taught her how to be more calm, less anxious, happier ... but most importantly I taught her how to play again.
Let's get back to me...
I'm a Certified Good Boy. I love cuddling, napping, and giving kisses.
My favorite toys are pink piggy and Bernie. (Bernie is my dad.)
My favorite game is fetch.
My favorite activity is swimming.
My favorite treats are Peanut Butter and anything flavored with Bacon.
(If you have real bacon, please send some to me. Mom doesn't let me eat it.)
