​​​​Clinical Supervision for Licensed Psychotherapists​ and Current Psychology Grad Students​

In my clinical practice, not only do I see patients, I also meet with psychotherapists who need a licensed psychologist to provide case consultation and supervision.  Licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, licensed mental health counselors, and newly licensed psychologists in private practice are all required to have a well seasoned supervisor.  

I also provide consultation and clinical education to graduate students in psychology.


​​Differential Diagnosis ​for
​LMFTs, LMHCs, LCSWs​, PsyDs & PhDs

In an increasingly complex world, and with the new Diagnosis​ and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders recently published, determining an accurate diagnosis for patients is complicated, and, at times, perplexing.  

I help other clinicians figure out exactly what they are seeing and hearing in their interactions with clients, what diagnoses can be ruled out, and ​​which one is the most accurate for treatment planning and insurance billing purposes.

​for Immigrants​​

As a first generation American daughter of immigrant parents myself, I have a great passion for helping families and individuals acculturate to life in California and the US.

​​​Whether the stresses are about building a business, integrating into suitable professional employment, navigating the education system, or raising children who value the history and tradition of your culture, I provide the coaching needed to succeed in all aspects of this new life. 


Academic Testing

In addition to forensic testing, I also administer several tests for students and adults, including:
  • ​​​​​GATE Testing
  • ADHD Evaluations
  • Learning Disabilities Testing ​​​

Calm for Court​
Quick Forensic Education for The Therapist Called to Court
In education and coaching sessions by phone, you'll learn:
  • ​How to write a report for -- or letter to  -- court 
  • What to put in and what to leave out
  • What to think about that's different from a clinical report
  • How to interact with lawyers
  • How to present yourself when giving testimony
  • ​When you don’t have to turn over records
  • When your therapy notes become legal opinions
  • If your opinion is really within your scope of practice

​I can review your report before you submit it to court.  I can advise you on how to research your state laws.  You can considerably reduce your anxiety by knowing what to do and to expect.

NOTE:  This is NOT clinical supervision or case consultation​​ about your treatment approach.
