Sand Tray Therapy


Sandtray therapy is an expressive and dynamic play process that is used by children, adolescents, individual adults, couples, families and groups in the presence of a trained sandtray therapist.  The therapeutic relationship aids the client in the opportunity to focus on the here and now.

Our office is equipped with an extensive collection of miniature objects and a sand tray.  The sand is contained in a tray with a blue bottom that can be represented as water in a scene.  The client is invited to create a world in the tray by making patterns in the sad or by placing objects into the sandtray in any arrangements that feel right to them.  The whole process gives the client the opportunity to bring internal issues to the surface instead of keeping them in the subconscious.  This can relieve many of the client’s symptoms.
