On November 5, 2012, the Pennsylvania Department of State reprimanded licensed psychotherapist Andrea E. Sywulak because she failed to cautiously and conservatively interpret data from interviews or tests and refraining from drawing conclusions not adequately supported by the data, failed to utilize the best interests of the child standard, and committed unprofessional conduct by departing from, or failing to conform to the standards of acceptable and prevailing psychological practice and by failing to assess the individual and family factors that affect the best psychological interests of the child.

She was additionally ordered her to pay a civil penalty of $3,000 and costs of investigation in the amount of $529.76 and she must complete a total of 20 contact hours of remedial education addressing the subjects of child custody, law, and ethics.
