MISSION


In 2013, Austin SandTray Association (ASTA) was born out of a desire to create a community of support for sandtray therapists and a recognition of the need for quality education in sandtray therapy. The 2017 ASTA Sandtray Conference aims to provide access to quality sandtray training for mental health professionals, while increasing awareness of sandtray as a therapeutically powerful modality in the field.


ASTA is an organization of mental health professionals who provide quality education and direction in support of the personal and professional growth of the sandtray therapist, while strengthening the integrity of the modality.
