DR. EMIN GHARIBIAN
I am a licensed psychologist (PSY 29643) specializing in neuropsychological and forensic evaluations. I have 10 years of education and training in clinical psychology and neuropsychology and extensive experience evaluating adults and adolescents for psychological and neuropsychological conditions.
My training and experience have been in psychological and neuropsychological assessment in a variety of clinical settings including private practice, outpatient mental health clinics, psychiatric hospitals, forensic hospitals, and correctional facilities.
I specialize in providing comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for a variety of neurological conditions including dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, complications from a stroke, traumatic brain injury, concussions, learning disabilities, and ADHD. I also specialize in forensic psychological and neuropsychological evaluations for immigration hearings, civil and criminal competency, and personal injury.
In addition to my contract services with Gunn Psych Services, I am a staff psychologist and medical staff member at Patton State Hospital. Patton State Hospital is a 1,500-bed maximum-security forensic psychiatric hospital housing judicially committed patients under the following commitment types: Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity (NGRI), Incompetent to Stand Trial, Mentally Disordered Offender, and Mentally Disordered Sex Offender. I routinely conduct psychological evaluations to evaluate patients and determine if they are competent to stand trial, write court reports, and testify in court as an expert witness.
I am appointed to the Los Angeles Juvenile Court Expert Witness Panel. I am also a member of the National Academy of Neuropsychology and the American Psychology and Law Society.
