I use sand tray for in-person sessions. This is very effective in activating your right brain and deeper emotions and awakening your unconscious mind.

Sandtray therapy is a unique type of expressive therapy where you can tell your life stories without having to rely on verbalizing. This can be especially helpful for those who have experienced traumatic events. This type of therapy uses sand and miniatures as tools, or emotion words, to tell your story in a safe environment.

— Nathan Heydari, Counselor in Milwaukie, OR

For kids and adults! We will explore your inner world, what is just below the surface of your consciousness, and bring to light what’s been here all along. Sometimes we need to get out of our analytical thinking mind and into our imagination to explore symbolism and see and feel how our patterns and mechanical ways of thinking and being impact us on a daily basis. Sandtray is a fun creative way to get distance between ourselves and the heavy gunk we’ve been lugging around in our psyches.
