Working with families to create child-focused parenting plans is Sandi's forte. She is dedicated to making them healthy and strong, and keeping them that way, no matter their design. Her M.Ed. in special education and psycholinguistics has taken her to practically every kind of setting devoted to working with children and their families or caregivers. Her range of psycho-educational experience includes adult behavior therapy; adoption counseling; parenting education; foster care; child development; adolescent special needs; early childhood intervention; and parenting her own three children. To the latter end, she is a veteran volunteer and office holder in her community school district. As a parenting mediator and coach, Sandi sees the positive first; she recognizes strengths and uses them to bolster confidence and achieve outcome objectives. Always focused on the best interests of children, Sandi brings her energy for parenting —with all its emotional, educational, and social challenges—to benefit yours.
