Immigration Psychological Evaluations
I provide culturally competent psychological evaluations in English, Portuguese and Spanish. I assess patient/family social and emotional factors by conducting biopsychosocial assessments. In addition to the assessment, I impart crisis intervention and short-term counseling. With the information provided throughout the assessment, I develop a plan of care and make recommendations based on the patient/family needs. I have considerable clinical experience working with underserved and marginalized populations as well as culturally diverse children, adolescents, adults and families. I am well-aware of the impact of abuse and trauma, loss, separation, anxiety, stress and depression can affect one emotionally socially, relationally, academically, occupationally and developmentally.
process & completion
Assessments can be done face-to-face for local individuals or via web-cam for people who do not live in the area. I am licensed in the state of California, therefore, I can only provide services in the state.
During this evaluation, you will have the opportunity to share your life story and experiences. Details such as family history, pertinent mental health history and facts about your immigration case.
The evaluations are typically completed within two-three weeks. However, urgent requests can also be accommodated.
