I then earned my Doctor of Philosophy degree in Clinical Forensic Psychology in 2015 from Alliant International University, Fresno.
I have worked with both children and adult clients from ages 2 and up. I have experience conducting a variety of psychological assessments, as well as providing individual and group therapy. My psychological assessment experience covers a gamut of tests, referral questions and diverse clientele; however, my professional experience has most recently focused on psychodiagnostic assessments, assessing for intellectual disability and autism.

Evaluation Services We Specialize In
Autism Spectrum Disorder
We believe that it is essential for children with suspected ASD to be evaluated at an early age to ensure that they are provided with the assistance and treatment that they require to attain their full potential. This disorder assessment process is broken down into multiple steps. Such as:
Obtaining a thorough background history from those who know them best, such as parents, teachers and other medical health and mental health professionals
Observations and interactions
Thorough, comprehensive and clinically proven testing
We administer comprehensive testing to diagnose ADHD. We will also want to know how symptoms influence a person's everyday emotions, behavior, efficiency, and lifestyle choices.
We address the behavioral and psychological causes of obesity to make sure you're qualified and ready for surgery. We are licensed clinical psychologists who regularly conduct pre-bariatric surgery psychological evaluations to ensure that all the surgeon needs are fulfilled for them to make an informed decision.
We provide cognitive evaluations that assess for overall intellectual abilities and provide an overall IQ score. These tests can help in determining intellectual functioning for gifted programs and/or help in identifying areas of strengths/weaknesses intellectually. While these evaluations are less extensive than our comprehensive evaluations, they still provide valuable information in understanding you/your children.
We offer individual and couples therapy from licensed clinical psychologists who have years of experience with all types of situations, backgrounds and diagnoses. Expect a personalized treatment process that will be tailored to your needs.
