Alexander John Shaia CST-T, PhD, LPC
Certified Sandplay Therapist & Teaching Member Since 1993

Alexander John was the first US male admitted to membership in ISST/STA. He is known for asking the question in those early days: “Where is the masculine” (outer and inner)?

As part of his extensive training, he studied with many luminaries including four decades of Jungian work beginning with John Sanford and Morten Kelsey in the 1970s, years of Jungian analysis and dreamwork, a month’s intensive in Switzerland with Dora M. Kalff (1989), on-going consultation with Kay Bradway (Sausalito), and courses with Estelle Weinrib (New York), Claudio Rìse (Milan, Italy), Agnes Bailey, (London & Connecticut) along with many other founding members of ISST and STA.

Alexander John provides online – individual and group – certified Sandplay case consultation.

Soon, he hopes to re-create his office and be able to again offer Sandplay therapy for individuals as well as for therapists wishing a certified process.
