Dr Raileen Merlino writing forensic psychology assessments & reports

Forensic Psychology assessments and reports. Comprehensive. Clear. Delivered in a timely manner.

I am honoured to be the preferred psychologist for several legal professionals.

I’m chosen for the following reasons:

  • Experience and expertise
    I’ve written in excess of 100 reports. Forensic psychology is one of my areas of expertise.
  • Clarity
    The reports are clear, which saves time, confusion and headaches.
  • Detailed
    My reports are comprehensive, meaning the best outcomes can be achieved for clients.
  • Fast
    Reports are delivered in a timely manner. My goal is to deliver fast turnarounds wherever possible.
  • Stress-free
    Reliability and open lines of communication means a stress-free experience for all involved.

Additionally, my background working with drug offenders*, domestic violence cases, and personality disordered patients has made my assessments/reports sought after because court reports usually cover that exact trifecta of domestic violence, drug use, and mental health.

*My Doctoral thesis title: Relationship between motivation, executive functioning and treatment outcome in offenders who have been drug dependent.

I provide assessments and reports for all court purposes:

  • Child Custody Evaluations
  • Care and Protection Assessments
  • Pre-Sentence reports
  • Immigration reports
  • Bail applications
  • Assessments for Victim’s Compensation Claim
  • Motor Vehicle Claims

My key strengths lie in my commitment and ability to provide proactive insight to ensure the care and welfare of clients, within the context of the strategic plan.

Aside from the reports, I have actively participated in Family Dispute Resolution and Mediation. I have also been a witness on a number of trials.
