I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and specialize working with children, adolescents and young adults as a Sandplay Practitioner. I have 30 years experience working in the healthcare profession. My experience in counseling with a diverse mental health population supports a holistic approach that values the relationship between the body, mind and the spirit. A holistic approach in treatment enhances one's personal strength to heal. For the past 15 years, I have assisted children, adolescents and young adults by establishing a trusting therapeutic relationship. The outcome of therapy is to feel confident, to have an improved sense of self, and to feel empowered by ones' own self-worth.

The Sandtray provides the specific container to work in and the sand provides the tactile sensation while the child, adolescent or young adult selects the miniatures to create a spontaneous, safe and carefree activity. The Sandplay process enables one to create a picture, in the sand, that reflects their personal experience. The process in the sandtray is often created quietly and, the therapist, withholding interpretation or judgment, will listen as the client shares their story, personal struggle and/or their understanding of their difficult situation. The Sandplay picture reflects their story along with a narrative if one chooses to share.
The client takes the lead in their own processing while the therapist provides a supportive, trusting relationship that is open and non-judgemental.
The client learns to trust one's internal sense of guidance that leads to becoming a secure individual.
Sandplay Therapy facilitates self regulation, feelings of competence, thus self-acceptance.
Sandplay Therapy is an effective tool for children and, too, it is an effective tool for adolescents and adults. Often, finding the words to express ones' feelings is a challenge. Together the client and the therapist can review one's creative process to help see and understand what they are feeling and experiencing. The picture created in the sand tray is a way for expressing one's internal feelings. Trauma whether it happens to a child, adolescent or an adult leaves one with a disrupted and disorganized sense of self. If you or your child/adolescent is experiencing trauma; personal or environmental; is noticably withdrawing from friends and family members; seems to struggle with developing appropriate coping skills;
exhibits fear, aggression, implusive/demanding behavior; and/or suffers with
sleep disturbances, such as experiencing bad dreams,
then consider Sandplay Therapy.
Sandplay Therapy is an effective intervention for anyone who is experiencing stress.
Sandplay is a therapeutic method that enhances self-healing and growth.
My goal is to facilitate healing evident in you or your child’s self-confidence and improved self-esteem.
