Sandtray therapy is an expressive and projective process which helps children and families process their issues and emotions. Children with trauma have difficulty with expressing their pain. It is easier for them to use the sand tray and miniatures to express their feelings as sand tray provides a safe place and gives children a sense of control. Sandtray Therapy often helps children access pre-verbal experiences that are in the unconscious mind (right brain).

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.
