For the psychological evaluations, I offer a 3 hour session typically split into 1.5 hours over 2 sessions and a 12-15 page write up that can be submitted with your documentation. With my approach, I tailor the assessment to the particular needs of each case, including but not limited to:
Asylum Cases – Explaining psychological reasons why a client missed the one-year filing deadline; and detailing how PTSD symptoms provide evidence of the persecution they suffered.
Extreme Hardship Cases – Identifying unique factors contributing to a client’s psychological distress such as: illness; disability; professional, financial, or academic hardship; or adverse home-country conditions that would affect the petitioner or their family members.
VAWA Cases – Detailing the client’s psychological symptoms which are common for domestic violence victims; assessing credibility; and where useful, explaining less common phenomena such as ways in which men are abused by female partners, etc.
Feel free to contact me if you’d like to ask any questions or request samples of my work.
*Please note that evaluations do not constitute a psychotherapy relationship and if I conduct an assessment with you, I cannot provide therapy services. I can offer to connect you with a provider that can do this though.
