Some of my own clients and students have called it a shamanic journey,
a looking into the mirror, a place to find self, a meditation, trance work,
a spiritual quest, a journey to the ancestors, a private drama,
inventing my life, genesis play, a place to talk to Mom, God's time,
and playground earth."

What Is It?
Sandplay Therapy is an incredibly powerful therapeutic technique for children, adolescents, and adults. Sandplay "is a powerful therapy, like a dream, that allows us to work through deep issues in a safe, non-verbal way."*
"The Sandplay method takes the limited therapeutic possibilities of language into account with great seriousness and offers alternative means of psychic expression. Disturbing life experiences frequently defy expression in words...Sandplay creates a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious."**
My theoretical orientation is rooted in Jungian theory and is based on the teachings of Dora Kalff, a Jungian Analyst.
