Areas of Expertise


Expert Witness

I have training and experience as an expert witness and have testified in court within both civil and criminal contexts through my work as a licensed psychologist. I specialize in mental status evaluation including psychological testing and evaluative reports requested by attorneys, the court system, business and corporations to provide understanding of an individual’s behavior or cognitive functioning and to address mitigating factors, probation and sentencing. I have specialty expertise with medical malpractice and medical conditions impacting psychological functioning, addiction and issues pertaining to sexual behavior. The psychological testing that I provide includes validated measures that screen for malingering and deception so that where necessary exaggerate or feigned symptoms can be detected and personality styles can be explained to assist the trier of fact with decision-making on the various civil and criminal matters brought before the courts.


Relevant Experiences

I have extensive training in forensic psychology and expert testimony. I have extensive training in DSM-5 diagnosis. OCD is obsessive-compulsive disorder and is characterized by the presence of obsessions and/or compulsions including recurrent and persistent thoughts or urges experienced as intrusive and repetitive behaviors aimed at preventing or reducing anxiety or distress that is not connected in a realistic way with reality. With poor insight the individual may begin to develop dysfunctional beliefs and overestimate threat where reality is replaced by imagined or feared outcomes.
