I am a clinical-forensic psychologist in private practice in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I specialize in conducting Independent Psychological Exams (IPE) with veterans appealing an unfavorable VA disability claim for PTSD or other mental disorders.
For appeals cases, it is usually best (for the veteran) if a the veteran's attorney or VA-accredited claims agent contracts with me directly for an IPE.
If you are a Veterans Law Attorney or VA-accredited Claims Agent, or Veterans Service Officer, you can schedule a free consultation via phone or Zoom to see I might be of assistance.
Also consider subscribing to my monthly newsletter, Psychological Insights for Veterans Law Attorneys, and receive a complimentary article, How to Challenge the Presumption of Competency for VA Mental Health Examiners.
Important: I can provide consultation or evaluation services outside of North Carolina only if
My Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree is in clinical psychology.
Calling myself a "clinical-forensic psychologist" means that I apply clinical psychology knowledge and methods to help answer legal questions. Psychologists who provide healthcare services must be licensed, but there is not a separate license for forensic psychology.
There are important distinctions between clinical and forensic psychological assessment, which you can review in this chart: Clinical vs. Forensic Psychology.
