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, by establishing a trusting relationship, I have helped children, adolescents and young adults find their own sense of security and to feel safe and empowered. The outcome of therapy is to feel confident, empowered and valued as your unique self!

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 one shares their story, personal struggle and is able to develop their own understanding of their personal challenge and to beable to master the challenges in their own individual manner. 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 evident in one's behavior.
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 feelings is a challenge. The theraputic relationship is based on trust! Together the client and the therapist can review the creative process to help understand the feelings and experience. The picture created in the sand tray is a way to communicate internal feelings. Trauma whether it happens to a child, adolescent or an adult can contribute to feeling a disorganized sense of self. For a child, adolescent or an adult feeling disorganized is scary. Healing can take place non-verbally and often the healing process is subtle. A personal transformation is the goal. A Sandplay process is unique to the individual. 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 call and set up an appointment - 484-868-2026!
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.
