About

I’m a psychotherapist with extensive experience working with individuals with diverse backgrounds. I would welcome the opportunity to assist you with providing quality immigration evaluations. I have received extensive Immigration evaluation training and have obtained advanced training by the Physicians for Human Rights Asylum Program. I provide psychological evaluations for clients seeking extreme hardship waivers, asylum, and protection through the Violence Against Women Act.
With my approach, I tailor the assessment to the specific needs of each case. I am currently meeting with clients via videoconference and have experience working with interpreters. Total cost for the evaluation is $950. I accept credit card, Venmo and provide payment plans.
I enjoy helping people work through the challenges of today's world as we take the journey together to get you to where you want to be in your life. If you are interested in counseling sessions please call 1 (786) 755-1863.
