Pathways is excited to announce its plans for the new Children’s Healing Garden to be constructed on the east side of the counseling center.


Donate to the Children's Healing Garden


The garden will be used in collaboration with 3Hopeful Hearts and the Alliance for Suicide Prevention. It is designed to engage children in therapeutic activities that will offer opportunities to use metaphors and symbolism to help children better understand their feelings and cope with the life-death cycle.


Garden features will include an oversized “bird’s nest” with an “eggs” seating area for one-on-one counseling; outdoor seating for group therapy; various paths and crossings of different textures for interaction in narrative play therapy; a memory garden; sand play area; steps for moving between tiers; shade structures and trees; a mandala area for art therapy; spaces for solace and sensory experiences with different colors, textures, smells, tastes, and the sound of running water.


Please contact Tammy Brannen-Smith at or Marsha Sesskin at about giving opportunities.
