The Sand Therapy Training Institute

Into the Depths with Symbols in Sand


Sand Therapy is a uniquely powerful therapeutic modality appropriate for clients of all ages and across cultures. Therapists from all mental health disciplines can combine the use of sand with other expressive arts as well as traditional talk therapy in their work with individuals, couples and groups.

Based on my more than four decades of research, teaching and training clinicians, the focus for this web site is on promoting and facilitating clinical expertise and the skills, aptitudes and competencies for responding to clients and their sand scenes. Too often, clinician curiosity or lack of training and grounding in theory leads to boundary violations or a failure to facilitate vital client safety.

My courses, trainings and consults are designed to demonstrate both the immense depth and healing of this unique modality as well as provide a step-by-step process for developing clinical competence.
