With over 30 combined years of experience, the founders of Sandbox Therapy Group have excelled at our craft. While operating private businesses serving individuals and families throughout east King County (as Anna’s CAPS, and Childhood Speech & Language) we have come together to strengthen our services with an interdisciplinary model of psychological services, speech therapy, and occupational therapy.

We also offer general assessment and individual treatment for speech therapy, including motor speech disorders and apraxia, occupational therapy, including sensory processing disorders, and general psychological services.
Sandbox Therapy Group has teen support available in speech therapy, occupational therapy (including pre-vocational and living skills up to age 21) and psychological services that extend into adulthood.
Our psychological staff also serve all ages to include those with a wide range of needs including general psychological, emotional, or behavioral support including individuals experiencing ADHD, anxiety and autism spectrum disorders, to name a few, with specialization in technological addictions such as video game addiction, Internet/phone addictions, or other digital media.
