My mental health assessments and psychological evaluations assist attorneys with establishing credibility at immigration court. In clinical interviews and through testing, I reliably find out if somebody has indeed experienced domestic abuse, torture, or discrimination. My reports are in-depth and include diagnosis, psychosocial history, prognosis, and treatment recommendations. Because of my experience in trauma treatment with survivors of torture and domestic violence, I have excellent credentials to determine the accuracy of a client’s declaration and make a convincing case. My services are for attorneys who want to bolster their case and build evidence in the following areas:

Asylum cases

Hardship waivers

Cancellation of removal waivers

Violence Against Women Act cases

U & T visa cases

Bond affidavits

My services include clinical interview, testing, report writing, and communication with the attorney. I don't work with interns and prepare all reports personally. Upon request, I can support you as an expert witness at court. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
