About

Dr. Sarah Richie • Clinical Neuropsychologist

Dr. Sarah Richie

Since my early days in high school playing the piano for Sunday church services at the Ellisville State School, a residential facility in Mississippi for individuals with intellectual and neurodevelopmental disabilities, I’ve felt a strong desire to promote understanding and acceptance of people who may learn differently or who have “superpowers” yet to be detected.

 

I’m so grateful for the formal education and training opportunities afforded to me over the years, but in many ways, the best “education” has come from the thousands of interactions with patients and their families along the way. I personally evaluate each individual referred and independently perform all activities to ensure complete doctoral-level service from start to finish.
