Founder-Personal Revolution Therapy, mental tools: Meditate before tackling problems. Neuro-psychiatric rater.
I have worked in clinical practice for over 30 years and have written hundreds of mental status evaluations for attorneys, including immigration attorneys. By gathering necessary clinical information and administering standardized assessment tools, I make accurate conclusions as to whether or not a client meets the medical criteria for a psychological disorder caused by hardship.
Many immigration lawyers struggle to complete their cases in a timely manner because most attorneys refer their clients to inexperienced mental counselors. Psychological summaries from the inexperienced counselors are generalized and unclear. Many attorneys have to spend additional time figuring out how to incorporate vague reports to their case at hand. In addition, unqualified mental counselors spend many sessions with asylum seeking clients, and then unnecessarily charge that client for each session.
In my work I also conduct evaluations for recipients seeking certification for disability exceptions
(N-648) with my medical director. I have found that many of these recipients come from poor countries where proper medical diagnosis and treatments are limited. Cognitive impairment is a progressive disorder if untreated. I have observed many recipients who have suffered a long history of untreated medical problems or head injuries.
As a qualified licensed clinician, I can determine if there are true measures in cases of hardship due to spousal abuse or cases of threatened deportation on a family member. I usually require an initial two-hour session to gather the clinical information needed to conclude my findings, which help immigration attorneys, understand their client’s mental status. My work is accurate, conclusive and efficient which are important attributes in these sensitive cases.
"“At last we have an eclectic and down to earth model to treat our patients – also valid as an owner’s manual for self-improvement – with a high degree of efficiency. The combination of Western and Eastern approaches to fix the negative way of feeling and thinking is a very welcome one at a time when many people embrace the materialism that comes as a subproduct of modern technology. James Triana has written “the book” which will revolutionize current concepts in psychotherapy.”
