Our Adult and Child Counselor, Sara, asked a client to create an art piece about her interpretation of anchors in life and what may be weighing us down.

The client depicted herself as the boat who is going through storms. Although she has been through some storms in life, she is managing to see the light through her healing journey. The anchor, she said, "represents still being tied to some degree of guilt, but she knows it will pass."
