Dr. Veronica (Dr. V) - Bilingual Clinical Neuropsychologist
Thank you for visiting my website to inquire more about who I am, the evaluations I provide, and about the referral process! Scroll down to view and/or print my curriculum vitae.
- WHO AM I?
I refer to myself as Dr. Veronica or Dr. V for simplicity purposes. I am a Bilingual Clinical Neuropsychologist and service all age span (from ages 3 and up) in either English, Spanish, or Bilingual.
- WHO DO I SERVE AND WHAT TYPES OF EVALUATIONS DO I CONDUCT?
I provide Psycho-Educational and Neuro-Educational evaluations (psycho-educational evaluations that incorporate neuropsychological measures). I also provide mental health evaluations for school-age students (known as Educationally Related Mental Health Services (ERMHS).
Since I also work with adults and the geriatric population, I hold privileges at various medical facilities within Riverside and San Bernardino counties providing a range of psychological services including neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy (individual, group, and family therapy). Lastly, I provide neuropsychological evaluations to personal injury patients referred to me by their attorneys.
I have been in private practice since 2010 and have dedicated my practice primarily to school-age children, providing them with second opinion evaluations (commonly known as Independent Educational Evaluations or IEE).
- EDUCATION AND NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL TRAINING
My undergraduate studies at the University of California Irvine (UCI) focused on Criminology and Psychology where I received two Bachelor's of Arts degrees in 2000. While my Master's (2003) and Doctorate (2006)degrees at Azusa Pacific University were in Clinical Psychology, my specific clinical training was focused on Clinical Neuropsychology with training across all age span.
I had the privilege of training under the tutelage of many exceptional bilingual clinicians throughout the course of my studies. I had the opportunity to train under the supervision of Dr. Xavier F. Salazar, Psy.D. and world-renowned neurologist, Dr. Helena Chui, M.D. while working on Alzheimer's disease research with the geriatric population at Rancho Los Amigos, USC. I went on to complete an internship at the Federal Bureau of Prisons working with the female and male inmate population who had committed a federal offense. There, at Metropolitan Detention Center, Los Angeles, I focused my training on Forensic Psychology.
I completed a formal post-doctorate fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center to become a neuropsychologist (see Q & A) under the supervision of internationally known neuropsychologists Dr. Marcel O. Ponton, Ph.D. and Dr. Kyle B. Boone, Ph.D. Upon completion of the fellowship, I taught full-time as a professor at Azusa Pacific University. In 2010, I took and passed my license exam in California as a psychologist and went on to work full-time as a clinical neuropsychologist at Executive Mental Health in Beverly Hills under the supervision of Dr. Ari Kalechstein, Ph.D.
My training and amazing supervision under well known clinicians has afforded me the exceptional experience to offer families with impartial and objective evaluations. I have worked with many school districts providing families with second opinion evaluations since 2010. My goal is to attend IEP meetings in person to review the evaluation results. However, on rare occasions, due to scheduling conflicts, I present the results by phone.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me by phone at (951) 266-6223. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you in the near future!
