Providing Psychological Reports for Immigrants & Psychotherapy


I’m flexible, friendly, and highly skilled in achieving the results my clients need. I been doing this kind of work for the past 17 years and work with many different lawyers around the USA. Born in Brazil, I have lived in the United States for the past 30 years. Experiences of immigration, exile, and displacement bring on emotional and social challenges that can be overwhelming. My professional and personal knowledge of multinational identity makes me especially sensitive to issues of cultural selfhood and adjustment. People with roots in more than one society are exposed to chronic stressors at home, at work, in relationships, and in the activities of daily life. A good-enough fit between self and environment is something we continually build and rebuild, in a hard process that can be beautiful and fascinating, but also costly for our self-esteem, our peace of mind, and our clarity of purpose. Much of my career is about reaching people in their struggles with these issues, resonating with their frustration, pain, and ambivalence as we create new foundations for a life of meaning and achievement in the society we have chosen.

If you are attempting to get a visa or green card in the U.S., but are blocked by being inadmissible, you may be eligible to file for a waiver of certain ground based on the extreme hardship your qualified relative will experience if you are not admitted to the United States.


VAWA is a means for battered and abused spouses (and certain parents and children) to obtain a green card without the cooperation of the U.S. citizen or permanent resident relative who is abusing them.



The U visa is a United States nonimmigrant visa which is set aside for victims of crimes (and their immediate family members) who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse while in the U.S. and who are willing to assist law enforcement and government officials in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity.

Humanitarian Visa

Other Humanitarian Visa Options.
Aside from asylum and refugees, the United States offers several other humanitarian immigration options for people in need of help. So, even if an asylum application ultimately fails, there still may be options to prevent deportation.

My Approach & Philosophy

Imigrar é uma experiência desafiadora. Todos nós enfrentamos alguma incerteza, estresse emocional e muita documentação desconhecida. Às vezes, há contratempos ainda mais difíceis: talvez você tenha que lutar pelo status de residente dos EUA ou se defender contra a ameaça de deportação. Quando seu advogado lhe pede uma avaliação Psicológica, você quer o melhor documento possível para a situação. Uma boa e completa avaliação de um professional experiente pode fazer a diferença entre mais lutas e sucesso.

Claudia Ribas é a profissional que você precisa. Nascida no Brasil, ela se mudou para os Estados Unidos há cerca de três décadas. Então ela conhece a experiência da imigração em primeira mão. Como uma psicoterapeuta habilidosa na prática privada, ela traz uma presença amigável e reconfortante para todo o seu trabalho. Ela é dedicada aos seus clientes, pontual, confiável e completa. Claudia Ribas irá guiá-lo através do processo de avaliação com uma mão firme.
