Helping People Dream. Helping Families Heal.
We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. -- George Bernard Shaw, playright
Sandtray Personal Growth Sessions
In addition to being an important part of play therapy, Sandtray can also be used in a guided, but non-therapeutic setting, to:
Increase Self Awareness
Solve a difficult problem
Bond with your partner, family, children, friends or work associates
Manage and reduce stress (it's like a massage for the soul)
Sandtray personal growth sessions typically last 90 - 120 minutes and are $150 per session. These sessions may be purchased individually or in packages of from 3 to 12 sessions. Packages of sessions are subject to a discount, depending on the number of sessions purchased. You may also purchase gift certificates for sandtray personal growth sessions.
Rites of Passage and Special Occasions
Sandtray can also be used as part of a very personal and powerful ritual by individuals, families and groups. Some examples are:
Celebrating an engagement, marriage or other commitment;
Celebrating a pregnancy or birth;
Mourning the passing of a loved one; and
Marking a milestone such as first menses, confirmation, a bar or bat mitzva, graduation, or passage into adulthood.
If you are interested in using sandtray at your event or ceremony please contact me to discuss the details and cost.
