Sand Tray Therapy

Sand Tray Therapy is a form of expressive therapy often used with children, which may be applied to adults, teens, couples, families, and groups as well. This therapy allows a person to construct his or her own microcosm using miniature toys and sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of the person’s own life and allows him or her the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self.  Sand Tray Therapy emphasizes what the person in therapy is experiencing at that moment and therapists are actively involved in facilitating current experiences of awareness and growth.
