Frequently Asked Questions:

No

I do not accept insurance for my services. The nature of forensic psychology often involves specialized assessments and evaluations that may not fall within the typical coverage of insurance plans. However, I am committed to providing the highest quality care and offer competitive and transparent fee structures. If you have any specific questions about my fees or payment options, please feel free to reach out, and I will be happy to discuss them with you. 

Remotely or in-person

Evaluations typically occur remotely via DoxyME, a HIPAA-compliant software. DoxyME has on-demand interpreter services in all languages.  If a defendant is incarcerated an in-person interview can be requested. If the defendant isn’t in custody the interview can be conducted at the public defender’s office or the attorney’s office. Most jails, state hospitals and facilities allow remote evaluations.

Yes!

As part of a comprehensive psychological assessment, I assess for a wide range of mental and psychological conditions, including Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). These evaluations involve an in-depth interview and the use of various assessments. All psychological evaluations with testing cost $500 and include a letter to your employer, doctor, probation officer, or other health professional.

If you have specific concerns about ADD or any other mental health condition, book a psychological evaluation to discuss the process in more detail and address any questions you may have. The goal is to provide a thorough and objective assessment.

Most states, but not all (yet)

Services are provided virtually through DoxyME. Dr. Anderson and Dr. Wetterer are both licensed in Nevada and California and hold PSYPACT certificates, thus allowing them to provide services in 40 states!

Dr. Anderson is very insightful and knowledgeable. She is passionate about the field of forensic psychology which shows through her work and the way she describes detailed accounts of her journey. I appreciated the opportunity to learn more about her role as a forensic psychologist. Dr. Anderson took time to meet with me for a student consultation for my graduate ethics class. She was personable and provided me with great feedback and knowledge. She made me think critically. I feel more confident about my ability to navigate ethical/legal dilemmas in a classroom environment.

Dr. Dana is one of the most educated, thoughtful, experienced, and caring individuals I've worked with since being pulled into to court nine years ago. Being In Pro Per and writing up my own RFO's, declarations, and Xparte motions wasn't easy, but with the help of a specialist who knows how to investigate, conduct psych evals and much more, it has made this last court date so much easier. She has helped my child and I who has experienced much trauma to know what to do to help her become much more independent and stronger. To know she has been acknowledged(awards) both domestically and abroad also brought me much comfort. In the system we have today of unqualified attorneys and evaluators in what most will say is a "broken system", there is Dr. Dana who only seeks out the truth. I highly recommend her to any parent who is having trouble navigating the system and especially in cases of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse. Look at her CV as she does much much more than what I have mentioned above.

Working with Dana is such a blessing. I had the pleasure of meeting Dana in Leadership Redding, a program designed to facilitate and grow leaders in the community we live. Dana has a great prospective for life, and she always finds unique solutions to any concern. Dana is motivating and no doubt she inspires anyone she meets. It is an added bonus I also get to call her my friend. - Samantha Klein, ACSW, Therapist

Dana has been very helpful in helping me understand my illness. Before speaking with Dana I felt alone and afraid. She has made me feel like I am not alone and that because of the trauma I faced what I am feeling is normal and that it is a temporary feeling that will pass. I find that with each session I am stronger and more confident in my ability to overcome this illness.
