The cornerstone of my service, which distinguishes me from others, is my training, experience, integrity, insight, skill and dependability. I am a recognized expert at evaluations of chemical dependency problems and highly skilled at providing accurate and objective substance abuse evaluations in difficult custody cases.  Another area of specialization involves my medical-legal services to individuals who are injured through the California Workers’ Compensation system. I conduct fair-minded Qualified Medical Evaluations and Agreed Medical Evaluations for injured workers. My medical-legal knowledge allows me to provide expert forensic witness services and case review of psychological injuries in a variety of legal situations. I also assess adults and children who are struggling educationally or in life where an effective psychological assessment can provide answers to understand your strengths and weakness’ and to make cutting edge diagnostic decisions. The heart of my evaluation is the recommendations which are tailored to you or your child’s unique strengths and needs so that challenges can be overcome.
