Psychological Evaluations for Adults and Children
I am a bilingual (Spanish) licensed psychologist who specializes in psychological, neuropsychological, and educational evaluations for adults, children, and adolescents. In addition to my practice, I am an Adjunct Professor (academic staff) at the Stanford School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry. I am committed to providing evaluations that are both tailored to each person and meet the highest professional standards as set by best practices in the field. Learn more about me.
My areas of assessment specialization include:
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or (ADD)
Specific learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia), academic achievement, school and testing accommodations
Mental health conditions such as anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression, OCD, schizophrenia/prodromal psychosis, and personality disorders
Complex psychological conditions that have not responded to treatment
Autism Spectrum (ASD), including "high-functioning" individuals with subtle presentations, women/gender non-conforming
IQ testing for school admissions (WPPSI-IV, WISC-V)
Forensic evaluations, including competency to stand trial, mental status at the time of the offense, immigration, personal injury
I also work with individuals who just want to gain a better understanding of their strengths and challenges.
I offer a variety of evaluation options to help you understand your, or your loved one's, strengths and challenges, as well as their root cause. The purpose of these evaluations is two-fold, to present a "full picture" understanding of a person, and to provide individualized strength-based recommendations that consider practicality and access to resources.
Understand why someone feels, thinks or behaves a certain way.
IQ testing is required for admission to some private schools or gifted programs. I can administer the WPPSI-IV, WISC-V and WAIS-IV.
Formal and informal consultation
Workshops and presentations
Learn how someone's brain works including their areas of strength and weaknesses.
Determine how cognitive abilities, academic skills, and emotional state impact academic performance. I have experience attending school meetings (IEP, 504 Plans.)
In some cases, a full evaluation may not be warranted.
