I specialize in psychological evaluations for immigration cases. These include extreme hardship waivers, cancellation of removal waivers, as well as asylum, VAWA, and U visa & T visa cases. My approach is to work closely with clients and their attorneys to provide a thorough evaluation process in a safe and welcoming environment. I offer thorough, professional evaluations and a quick turnaround time. My carefully detailed reports address the most important questions about your case.

Since 2016 I've completed over 500 immigration evaluations for clients from all over the world and worked with dozens of attorneys. I strive to provide services in a compassionate and empathetic environment, always assuring you the highest level of confidentiality.


As an experienced and trauma-certified clinician, I understand the complex ways in which mental health issues and trauma impacts a person’s emotional, social, and cognitive functioning. As a former lawyer with well-honed skills in investigation and interviewing, I am able to address and speak to the important legal aspects of your case.

I am a psychotherapist based in Austin, TX, with 10 years of experience working with survivors of trauma and abuse. Growing up in a family of immigrants, I intimately recognize the stress and emotional hurdles tied to navigating the immigration system. Having personally navigated the immigration process to become a permanent resident and then attain citizenship, I possess a unique understanding of the challenges involved. My services encompass culturally sensitive and objective psychological evaluations designed for immigration purposes, and I conduct interviews in both Spanish and English.
