If you or a loved one is seeking an immigration waiver or filing to petition a judge to grant a suspension of deportation, then a clinical evaluation can help strengthen your case. There are four types of immigration waivers that can benefit from a clinical mental health evaluation:
- Extreme Hardship Waivers (I-601)
- U-Visa (Victims of Crime)
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA-Domestic Violence)
- Political Asylum
Understanding that each individual’s experience is unique, a safe environment is provided to help the client report any underlying circumstances to help present a compelling case. My personal experience attending St. Mary’s University gave me the opportunity to meet peers from across the globe. Traveling throughout Latin America, Europe and the Middle East further reinforced my admiration and respect for other cultures and faiths. I am privileged to have worked on evaluations for people from Mexico, Central & South America, China, and India. As a bilingual clinician licensed by the Texas Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors, I am also a graduate of the Immigration Evaluation Institute.
