Samantha England, Psy. D.

I obtained my Master’s degree and Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology, and forensic psychology has always been a special interest of mine. Between 2018 and 2023, I obtained specialized training in forensic psychology. Throughout my extensive training, I have conducted a wide variety of criminal and civil evaluations, including fitness for duty, personal injury and liability, capacity to stand trial, diminished capacity, mental state at the time of the offense evaluations, and risk assessments. This work exposed me to a wide variety of individuals including those who have experienced trauma, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation. I bring this forensic expertise to conducting evaluations for family court to include substance use, psychological, parental capacity, and custody evaluations.

Throughout my training, I have seen the stress that people endure when going through the legal process and/or a court-ordered evaluations. You may be concerned that you will not be treated fairly or that you may not be heard by the evaluator. It is my personal goal to approach each case with the utmost respect and dignity. I strive for fairness, respect, accuracy, and aim to provide clear feedback and answers to questions that you may have. Ultimately, it is my hope that I can assist all parties involved in a respectful and fair manner.

From Samantha:
In today’s world, it is easy to get caught up in the challenges that life throws at you. During these times, I remind myself of the quote by Lao Tzu- “Be content with what you have. Rejoice in how things are.” I use this quote as a reminder to stay in the moment. I believe that finding new skills to help myself stay grounded and in the moment always improves my physical and emotional health. Although I find myself learning new skills daily, some personal favorites of mine are hiking, walking my dog, and spending time with friends and family.

We know it's not always easy to ask for help.
But sometimes talking with a compassionate, insightful professional can provide answers and clarity.
