Sandy strives to create a safe, open and nonjudgmental environment for each and every client she services.
Sandy holds a Certificate in Field Instruction & Supervision and has a long history of participating on local and statewide boards and task forces, as she believes “it takes a village” to create safe and healthy individuals and families that live in the communities we serve.
