Aquatic Psychotherapists use water to soothe or heal clients through any or all of the senses. Therapies can be either heard, touched, smelled or one can be emerged in the water. Healing can occur on land, near the water, on the water or in the water. Each Aquatic Psychotherapist integrates water into their therapeutic practices in their own unique way.
Sandra Moenssens is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She has been in private practice in Florida for more than 15 years. She is an avid water enthusiast who created Aquatic Psychotherapy in 2020. Healers and therapists have been using water to soothe and heal since the beginning of time, but only recently has a term been created for it by trained professionals. Sandra has been using the peacefulness of the water for many years to self-soothe, wash away her day, refresh and renew.
Sandra wants to bring these transformative qualities of water to you, so you may also wash away your turbulent times and transform them into soothing waves that will get you back into the flow.
