Dr. Sarah England is a licensed clinical psychologist with specialized training in neuropsychology at the Williamsburg Therapy Group. She works with a wide range of individuals who are experiencing cognitive (thinking and memory) difficulties related to a range of conditions including ADHD, and provides neuropsychological evaluations to help clarify and characterize their concerns. As a clinical neuropsychologist, Dr. England focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of cognitive difficulties and possible brain dysfunction. She believes it is important to offer individuals a safe environment with compassionate, client-centered evaluations focusing on the mind-brain-body connection, and collaborative care. Such care is accomplished through collaboration and cooperation with the individual, and other providers participating in the individual’s care (e.g., therapists, psychiatrists, physicians) as well as with targeted recommendations for treatment. Additionally, Dr. England provides intervention such as cognitive remediation, therapy (e.g., depression, anxiety, PTSD), and cognitive behavioral health therapies (e.g., CBT for sleep).
Dr. England obtained her Doctorate in Psychology from the Clinical Psychology, Health Emphasis Program at Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University. There she focused on the mind-brain-body connection in terms of cognition, mood, health behaviors, and gait functioning in older adults. She completed her neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship at VA Connecticut Healthcare System, West Haven – Yale School of Medicine, and Lenox Hill Hospital, Department of Neurology/Neurosurgery. In addition to working at Williamsburg Therapy Group, Dr. England is an Instructor in Clinical Medical Psychology in Psychiatry at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and New York State Psychiatric Institute.
Prior to becoming a neuropsychologist, Dr. England obtained her Bachelor of Fine Art’s from Tyler School of Art, and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate of Psychology from Columbia University. Her unique background has provided her with a distinct perspective on evaluating and conceptualizing individual cases.
