Florida Sandplay Therapy Association
Flora M.Torra, Ed.S. Licensed School Psychologist

I am a licensed School Psychologist who stepped out of the box to include therapy for children and teens. With 25 years of training and experience, I integrate the fields of education, neuropsychology and psychotherapy to serve children, adolescents and young adults.

My vision is to create a place where children can be seen and heard for who they are and to guide their parents in developing a therapeutic or more attuned relationship with their child. 

My interests lie in connecting children to their inner resources; their playfulness, their creativity and sense of Self. It is through spontaneous play that a child can connect to their bodies and gain self-control; it is through their imagination that they can solve problems; it is through their creativity they can develop self-esteem.

In Sandplay we use Jungian psychological principles to connect with the active imagination and nonverbal processes in the child. By creating a “free and protected” space they can tune in to their impulses, thoughts and feelings as a way to resolve inner conflicts. In somatic therapy we use a bottom up approach that starts in the body to assist the child in feeling more grounded, more in control, and feel better about themselves. I can assist with lack of self-control and behavior problems, anxiety, divorce, grief or loss, attachment issues and trauma.

I began my career teaching students with learning disabilities and quickly learned that I wanted to do more. My thirst for learning led me to earn a Specialist Degree in School Psychology, a Master’s of Science degree in Pastoral Studies, and a Diplomate certification in School Neuropsychology. I also traveled as a volunteer to Croatia assisting in a summer camp for post-war orphans and was a missionary for a year in the Caribbean. I continue to do volunteer work with the Dominican Republic missions and currently with Mexican immigrant population in Apopka. I became a Sandplay practitioner of the Sandplay Therapists of America. I traveled to Switzerland (Carl G. Jung’s home and birthplace of Sandplay) to participate in an intensive Sandplay conference involving bodywork, art therapy and contemplative practices. 

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens." Carl Jung
