Sandtray Therapy

Sandtray therapy is “an expressive and projective mode of psychotherapy involving the unfolding and processing of intra‐ and inter‐personal issues through the use of specific sandtray materials as a nonverbal medium of communication, led by the client or therapist and facilitated by a trained therapist” - Homeyer & Sweeney

Why Sandtray Therapy?

Sandtray therapy allows a person to construct their own microcosm using miniature toys and colored sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of the person’s own life and allows them the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self.
