Immigration Evaluation

Whether you are an individual seeking services for yourself or a family member, or an immigration attorney identifying resources for a psychological evaluation of a client, our practice can assist as you navigate through the USCIS immigration process. We know that discussing difficult moments can be distressing- our staff are trained to conduct thorough, timely evaluations that aim to produce comprehensive reports while balancing the emotional and psychological needs of an individual throughout this challenging process.

Dr. Singer was awarded the American Psychological Association’s Citizen Psychologist Award for her advocacy, outreach, research, and clinical experience working with immigrant and refugee clients.
