Within her private practice,

evaluation of potential or existing claims, examination of other psychological expert
reports, and trial consultation. In civil litigation, she specializes in
allegations of emotional distress and psychological injury resulting from
personal or work injuries with a particular interest in workplace harassment/discrimination and wrongful termination. Other areas of interest are with criminal cases, specifically for
competency to stand trial, competency to waive Miranda rights, and mental state
at the time of the offense (MSO).
Dr. Freeburg’s evaluations
focus on assessing and integrating the totality of the evidence to formulate
the most accurate and defensible
psychological opinions. She believes that in any forensic evaluation the strongest
and most accurate position is one where even the smallest details and nuances are not sacrificed to create
an over-simplified picture that does not hold up to scrutiny. However, most important
is being able to impart the information, regardless of the complexity, in such
a way that the information is accessible to attorneys and their clients, the judge,
and the jury.
In her private treatment practice, she utilizes individual and family therapy modalities
for adults, adolescents, and children. Dr. Freeburg has experience with
depression, anxiety, traumatic exposure, attentional difficulties,
post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, and personality disorders
and patterns, and sexual/physical abuse.
