RESTORATIVE
CRAFTING

Like therapy but you also get to craft.

Crafting can be a powerful therapeutic tool.  It provides an outlet for stress while helping ground yourself through difficult and overwhelming emotions.  It allows you the opportunity to build new skills which can boost confidence and mood.  Many of the repetitive movements associated with crafting can create a meditative state of calm that increases mindfulness.

Restorative crafting interweaves individual psychotherapy with crafting instruction. Services are provided in person at client's residence and are individualized to each client's skill level, emotional needs, and resources.

Some projects will require clients to have access to specific tools such as a sewing machine. Tools will be provided for the duration of session for certain crafts such as stained glass. The length of services is dependent on the project and your emotional needs. 

Currently services are provided in person in client's home which can create logistical challenges that can be discussed prior to meeting.
