William Rung, M.S., M.A.
My name is William Rung and I am currently completing my final year of practicum towards receiving my doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) from Long Island University (LIU Post). In addition to my training towards becoming a clinical psychologist, I have received a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Psychology from the New School for Social Research and a Master of Science (M.S.) in Clinical Psychology from LIU Post.
I have worked extensively with adolescents and young adults and have treated a range of issues from anxiety and depression to personality and mood disorders, bringing to each case not only clinical acumen, but curiosity and humility as each iteration of overall mental health is unique to the individual. My areas of expertise include working with trauma, dissociation, identity concerns and LGBTQ+-informed treatment.
Having worked as Co-Director at the Pride Healing Center at LIU Post, a mental health clinic specifically focused on culturally-competent treatment of the LGBTQ+ community, I have experience training other clinicians in this area of specialization as well. Utilizing both psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques, I work collaboratively with my clients to address their unique areas of concern. Thus, I have tailored my range of clinical experiences to reflect my dedication to the diversity of human experience and identity.
