Sand Tray therapy is a valuable non-verbal tool for working with children, families, couples and individuals. 

Emotional issues that are not easily verbalized can be expressed in the sand. The creation of sand trays allows a client to delve deeper into what is troubling them and facilitate change. The sand provides a playful, non-threatening environment that provides a full sensory experience that quiets the nervous system and raises self-esteem.
