About dr. Aubrey

scope of practice


Dr. Aubrey is a full time forensic psychologist. His practice specializes in evaluations and court related matters. He has completed  over 4,000 forensic evaluations and supervised over 2,000 additional forensic evaluations.

Over 2,300 sex offender evaluations are included in the above totals. Defendants included males and females, both adults and juveniles.

Evaluations have been conducted at the request of defense counsel, prosecuting attorneys or on direct order of the judge. Evaluations have been conducted to assist each judicial district in New Mexico; the United States District Courts (various jurisdictions); state courts in Arizona, Colorado, California, Florida, New York, Texas, Utah, and Washington; Court Martial proceedings for the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy; and several tribal courts.

Dr. Aubrey has been qualified as an expert in over 250 court cases. He has been qualified as an expert in the following areas: clinical psychology; forensic psychology; and the evaluation and treatment of sexual offenders. 

Dr. Aubrey is a member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA). ATSA is an international organization devoted to prevention of sexual abuse through research, training, education and public information.

Evaluations for the Courts have addressed competency to stand trial, specific intent, criminal responsibility, mitigation, risk analysis, alternative sentencing recommendations and evaluation of juveniles' amenability to treatment.

These evaluations have included juveniles and adults charged with offenses ranging from probation violations through capital crimes. Most cases were sexual offenses, with some homicide, other violent crimes, drug crimes and property crimes.

Custody disputes have become an increasing source of referrals for evaluation. The issue in these cases is whether one or more of the adults involved with the child has unhealthy sexual interests that may pose a risk to the child. Psychosexual evaluations can explore this concern.

Dr.  Aubrey has conducted quality assurance reviews of over 300 Q-level (Top Secret) security clearance evaluations for the United States Department of Energy.

Dr. Aubrey also has conducted fitness for duty evaluations for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA).

My web site is intended to be educational and to acquaint you with my practice. I have included information on many of the themes I often discuss with attorneys and mental health colleagues. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions that are not addressed, or if you want to discuss whether a potential referral is appropriate for my practice.

I accept referrals for forensic psychological evaluations and psychosexual assessments. Referrals typically are made through a defendant’s attorney. I will consider self-referral or contact by a defendant’s family on a case-by-case basis. I prefer that, if possible, evaluations be done as a privileged attorney work product, unless they have been ordered by the court. Court orders should specify my name as the evaluator.

While I do not provide counseling, I am familiar with many therapists throughout New Mexico. I try to stay informed about who provides sex offender counseling and non-offender sexuality counseling, as these are scarce and hard to find resources. If you are a mental health professional and you accept for treatment clients with a history of problem sexual behavior, please contact me so I can include you in my referral network.
