Senior Therapy

Do you worry that a senior in your life, maybe your mother or father, is suffering from loneliness or living in isolation? Perhaps your senior relative isn’t sleeping because of a fear of dying, physical aches and pains, or both.

Depression Therapy

Do you feel unable to face your daily responsibilities? Are you suffering in silence, feeling like nobody understands the gloom you’re living with? Do you find yourself hiding away from the world, sometimes unable to muster the energy to get out of bed in the morning?

Anxiety Therapy

Do you feel like anxiety is limiting your life? Are you suffering in silence, feeling like nobody understands what you’re going through? Do you find yourself hiding away from the world, afraid of triggering social anxiety or a panic attack?

Forensic Interviewing of Children

Forensic interviewing of children is an impartial fact-finding process that guides decision-making in criminal, family, and juvenile law cases. A forensic interview is a structured conversation that is designed to obtain information from the child about an event the child has experienced.

Competency to Stand Trial

Legal practice requires that defendants in criminal proceedings are competent to stand trial. To meet this requirement, Federal and State case law imposes responsibility on trial judges to ensure a defendant’s competency if presented with evidence that calls this ability into question.

Criminal Responsibility

As part of trial strategy, defense counsel may put forth an insanity defense asserting that a defendant’s state of mind at the time of the offense was severely impaired and, therefore, reduces the defendant’s legal culpability. A defendant who is competent to stand trial may still have a legitimate basis for an insanity defense.

Expert Witness & Trial Consultation

Incorporating the expertise of a forensic psychologist in trial planning and preparation can be a valuable strategy for effective legal representation. As an expert witness, a forensic psychologist can provide testimony concerning the psychological issues in a case or serve as a rebuttal witness to another expert.
