The Center for Sand Tray Play provides training and consultation for mental health professionals in the practice of sand tray play therapy.  Sand tray play  is a powerful and effective intervention tool for children, teens, adults, and families in a variety of therapeutic settings.  Sand tray play utilizes a wide range of miniature figurines with which clients “build a world” in a tray of sand.  With the support and witness of a sand tray therapist, this process of story telling through images promotes a deepened expression, experience, and understanding of the client's inner world, and thus provides the opportunity for healing on a variety of levels.  Specialized training is essential for effectively using sand tray play as a therapeutic tool. 


We are approved by the Association for Play Therapy to offer continuing education specific to Play Therapy.  (APT Approved Provider #13-354).


The Center for Sand Tray Play is dedicated to providing 'free and protected space' for mental health professionals who want to experience and become proficient in the therapeutic practice of sand tray play.
