Sandtray Therapy

"Often the hands will solve a mystery that the intellect has struggled with in vain"
- Carl Jung

Sandtray is a form of expressive therapy that involves using miniature figures to create scenes or worlds within a tray of sand. Traditional talk therapy is not always the appropriate form of therapy for all clients, particularly those who struggle with verbalizing thoughts, emotions, and experiences. Sandtray therapy uses the mind-body connection to allow clients to communicate in a nonthreatening way. Sandtray therapy can be effective for clients experiencing:

  • Trauma

  • Anxiety

  • Grief and Loss

  • Depression

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Anger and Aggression
