My greatest strength is evaluating and treating trauma of all kinds. Most psychological problems stem from learned reactions to trauma. Depression and personality difficulties can be addressed using trauma-treatment modalities: EMDR, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. I work with psychiatrists who prescribe medications addressing neurochemical conditions.
I am a well-known forensic psychologist, with a reputation for thoroughness and honesty since 1981.I have testified as an expert witness in personal injury litigation, including motor vehicle accidents, airplane crashes, natural disasters, and sexual abuse or harassment. I have taught judges, attorneys, and probation officers about psychological testing and risk assessment.
