Immigration Evaluations

Hablo Español

Since 2014, I have conducted hundreds of successful mental health psychological evaluations for immigration cases, including: I-601/I-601A Hardship Waivers, U-Visas, VAWA, T-Visa, and AsylumWith over nine years of experience as a trauma psychotherapist, I have a deep understanding of my clients' unique cases and circumstances. I also have six years of experience as an immigration legal assistant, which has given me an important perspective into the complexities of each type of case.

What is included in the evaluation? 

- Assessment of biopsychosocial factors and relevant historical information
- Clinical observations, assessment of symptoms, and associated DSM V diagnoses
- Administration of validated and widely-used symptom screening tools to support clinical diagnoses
- Option for continued treatment if client requires more support

Trauma Evaluations (VAWA, U-Visa, Asylum, and T-Visa)

For trauma evaluations, I focus on the client's level of functioning before and after the qualifying incident(s). I include an assessment of their level of vocational and relational functioning, self-esteem, as well as familial and financial implications of the trauma. I also assess the client's trauma history and incorporate how this informs present day symptomatology. These evaluations include diagnoses from the DSM V.

Hardship Evaluations (I-601/I-601A Cases)

For hardship evaluations, my focus is on the detrimental psychological impact caused by threatened or actual separation from a qualifying family member. I assess the multifaceted psychological, physical, and financial implications of the separation and include DSM V diagnoses.
