Anica also has a lot of experience with high-risk presentations, i.e., suicidality and non-suicidal self-injury (deliberate self-harm). Psychometric assessments such as cognitive functioning and ADHD assessments have been another interest area for her.

She has a particular interest in conducting forensic assessments on female offenders who have been separated from their children, and offenders who have been victims of violence.
