The transition from another culture or country can be challenging, triggering stressors that provoke anxiety, depression and a sense of feeling overwhelmed. One can only imagine that having the added concerns of seeking asylum and not knowing how to navigate the process, or facing deportation can certainly intensify those emotional and psychological responses.
My name is Dr. Akeisha Rivera and I am a Licensed Psychologist and the founder of Creating Stronger Bonds Psychology PLLC. In addition to providing psychotherapy for individuals and couples, I also specialize in forensic psychological immigration evaluations. The psychological immigration evaluations that I conduct are comprehensive, and are conducted in a warm, nonjudgmental environment, to help establish rapport and create a sense of safety.
These immigration evaluations provide your attorney and immigration officials with extensive insight into how your journey to the United States, while in the United States, or your possible deportation back to your country has impacted your mental health/ psychological functioning. Further, these immigration evaluations can help your attorney to effectively strengthen your immigration case.
