Sandy Dooley graduated with a Ph.D. in counseling from University of North Texas after which she established a private practice in Dallas.  Prior to graduation, Sandy interned at The Family Place and worked with MHMR patients.  During her early years of practice in area hospitals,  Sandy worked with patients suffering abuse, trauma, drug and alcohol addiction, and personality disorders.

Sandy also conducted workshops for other professionals that focused on addictive disorders and attachment disorders.  During that phase of her career, Sandy counseled children, adolescents, adults, and couples in marital and family therapy.

Since 2009, Sandy has focused on working with family attorneys in high-conflict divorce cases.  These families often experience intense emotional issues regarding custody, access/visitation of their children as well as issues related to re-structuring the family post divorce.  Many suffer from symptoms related to Parental Alienation that hopefully can be treated through Reconciliation Therapy.

 Sandy has conducted more than 100 custody evaluations and many adoption evaluations.  These custody evaluations are both by court appointment and by private request.

Sandy is also extensively trained as a MHP in Collaborative Law and enjoys working with families in a non-litigation environment.

Aside from working in family law, Sandy maintains a private practice counseling adults and children.
