What does a clinical interview look like?
You will be scheduled for 1-2 assessment interviews, where I will gather in-depth information about your work and family history, conditions of your home country, medical conditions, and adverse experiences that have caused need for you or your family member to remain in the United States. Depending on the type of waiver you are seeking, family members will be invited for an interview as part of the process.
What is your approach like?
I strive to create a compassionate and caring environment during the interviews. As a trauma-informed therapist, my goal is create an atmosphere where you feel emotionally safe and welcome. Working closely with your attorney is key to providing a thorough report. Most of all, it is important to help families remain together, and ensure individuals have a safe, secure place to call home.
How do we meet for appointments?
Appointments can be scheduled in-office or via telehealth (online video call). The quality of the interview does not change with either format for meeting. It’s more about what is most convenient for you. I am licensed to provide evaluations in DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes. Payment plans are available.
