I have studied using sand tray therapy and have used it often in my work over the past few years. I receive supervision for my sand tray work with clients.

— Lauren Krzyzaniak, Licensed Professional Counselor in Farmington Hills, MI

Sand tray is a great expressive therapy for all ages. Using sand, water and miniatures, the client is able to express repressed underlying thought patterns and world-view perspectives through this soothing creative expression.

— Katherine Crane, Licensed Professional Counselor in Rockwall, TX

I have a proper Sandtray therapy setup in my office, with a wide array of symbols for you to select from in communing with your intuitive and unconscious parts. Through the power of Sandtray, many insights and deep understandings can be brought to light. I have the training to facilitate your journey into the unconscious and hold safe space to help you gaze into your own inner-world.

Sand tray therapy allows individuals to build their world using miniatures and sand. This experiential technique is helpful for all ages to visualize aspects of their current situation they may not have considered otherwise.

Sometimes people have a hard time saying what's on their mind either because they can't articulate it or because their brain works more in pictures than in words. Enter Sand Tray Therapy. A client is given a prompt based on what they are working on in therapy or by identifying something they want to work through. By choosing figurines and placing them in a sand tray world, a client can problem solve and learn more about themselves. It's pretty awesome.

— Michelle Fortier, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Tallahassee, FL

I utilize Sand Tray Therapy as an expressive technique and intervention to tap into the non-verbal, emotional and creative side of the brain. Clients use a variety of miniatures placed in a sand tray to symbolically identify and work through thoughts, feelings, behaviors, conflicts and struggles. Most people are able to gain new perspectives and insights that are quite meaningful for them.
