Sandra Lee Blood, MA, LCPC
Associates In Family Care
Licensed Professional Counselor (Illinois: 180000821)

Sandra Blood heads up our newest acquisition, the AFC Lake Zurich office, which she established in 1989. Sandra obtained her undergraduate degree in psychology from Roosevelt University in 1985 and her Master's Degree in clinical psychology from Wheaton College Graduate School in 1988. Her internship was with The Guidance Center, a subsidiary of Elmhurst Hospital, in Elmhurst, IL.

Upon graduation, Sandra worked for a year with Cornerstone Counseling Association where she led a 12-week therapy group for sexual abuse survivors. Sandra was one of the original Crisis Response Team members for two years when HCA Woodland Hospital opened in 1990 in Hoffman Estates. She conducted psychological assessments and processed voluntary and involuntary inpatient admissions.

Sandra is a single parent who raised two daughters doing administrative work before changing careers. She has extensive business experience, primarily in sales and marketing. She also managed respiratory therapy seminars in hospitals in various sales districts around the country. In each job she managed to find some kind of outlet for her writing ability, at one point putting out a newsletter to the national sales force from concept to distribution. For several years, she was a book reviewer for the Journal of Psychology and Christianity, a publication of the Christian Association for Psychological Studies. She is a published author, her most recent piece appearing in The Chicago Caregiver about the trip she and her brother took to the Grand Canyon with their mother who has Alzheimer’s.

Sandra enjoys volunteering at Willow Creek Community Church where she has been a small group leader, worked in the Hospitality Room, Women’s Ministries, and stage design through Production.

Sandra lives a productive single life in the northwest suburbs with her cat Green Eyes.
