She has extensive experience conducting forensic evaluations of adults at all stages of the court process (from pre-trial to trial and sentencing). She has a volume of experience working with serious criminal matters at both the federal and state level, in civilian and military courts, as well as a prior history of working with California family courts. Dr. Sahni is regularly asked to provide expertise as a trial consultant and/or topic expert testifying in a variety of areas, including (but not limited to): sexual and physical violence, recidivism risk, alcohol and memory, alcohol and intent/executive functioning, as well as various factors in mitigation that may be related to the presence of severe mental disorders and/or addiction.

Dr. Sahni also provides pre-employment psychological evaluations to the majority of law enforcement and fire agencies throughout San Diego and Imperial counties.
