About

Dr. Soto received her Psy.D. in Clinical Forensic Psychology with a particular focus on court-involved children and families. She has extensive experience with issues related to separation, divorce, child custody and parenting and has a passion for supporting children and families undergoing structural change. Beyond this forensic arena, Dr. Soto has clinical training and experience working with special needs children and adolescents, including those on the autism spectrum and those with emotional or behavioral disorders. She has facilitated groups for both adults (parenting skills, anger management, domestic violence and substance abuse) and children (socioemotional and psychosocial skills building). Dr. Soto works from a psychodynamic theoretical approach, taking into account relational patterns and cycles. In working with both individuals and families, she focuses on interpersonal connectedness and cyclical processes to help conceptualize and effectuate change.
