Additional Information

I have been a licensed clinical./forensic psychologist for over thirty years and a licensed private investigator for the past twenty. I have worked extensively in a correctional setting, evaluating suicide and violence risk as well as the interplay between mental illness and violence. I have worked with the San Diego Superior Court to evaluate competency to stand trial, assess criminal responsibility, and/or mitigating circumstances. In addition to my forensic expertise with sex offenders, I have conducted over 200 independent harassment/discriminatlon evaluations. I have received special training in psychological autopsies, investigative psychology, and violence risk assessment.
