Sand Tray Therapy

Meet the specialists

I use a virtual sand tray to help clients show me their thoughts, feelings and emotions. Being able to show what they feel now and how they want to feel can help a person find solutions to making change in their life. The creative element is enjoyed by people of all ages.

Sandtray is an expressive therapy that uses a tray of sand and a set of figures to create scenes that reflect one's inner experience including those experiences that are pre-verbal or the person may have no words to express. When these experiences can be expressed they can then be transformed.

The Sandtray translates personal experiences into a concrete, three dimensional form. Through the use of figures and objects, whether they take humanistic, animalistic or some imaginative form, one can accurately represent aspects of their lives in such a clear, expressive and symbolic manner without using words which might be difficult or painful to share. A client also has the unique opportunity to physically and organically work out such emotions through the natural qualities of the sand.

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.
