Sand Tray is a great tool for all ages (children through adults) that can allow you to process past events using your creative right brain.

— Nathan Heydari, Counselor in Milwaukie, OR

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.
