First and foremost, welcome to my blog! My name is Dr. Tristin Engels. I am a licensed Clinical Forensic Psychologist in the State of California. I am the owner of Clinical and Forensic Psychological Services and provide psychological assessments and evaluations for various referral reasons. The majority of my business supports legal proceedings in which the court or attorney would like an assessment to identify any potential mental health or cognitive impairments, second opinion pre-employment evaluations, second opinion fitness for duty evaluations, evaluations for parents in a custody dispute, pre-sentencing or parole evaluations for treatment recommendations, and the like. I also currently provide “telepsych” services in which therapy is provided via the web (similar to Face time). I don’t currently take insurance, but that will be changing soon. It’s a long process for credentialing through insurance companies and as soon as that process is complete, I will be sure to update you all. I also am able and willing to provide clinical supervision to students obtaining their clinical hours for licensure for a monthly stipend.
