The goal of this project was to create a soothing environment for the clients at Northwest Journey Counseling and Treatment Clinic. One of the therapeutic tools set into motion in the mural is the bridge. The planks contain words like hate, anger, denial, help, forgiveness. Clients can reflect on which of these words best describes what they are feeling and from there, they can try to develop a way to progress to the most positive state. Some other calming elements include looking for hidden animals and investigating the natural surroundings.

Below is a step by step progression:
