The VRCaPS Team of Compassionate Therapists and Staff
Kane Tung, Ph.D.
Founder, Clinical Director
As a father of an Autistic child and Staff Psychologist for one of the premier centers for Autism and Developmental Disabilities in Westchester, NY: Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS), Dr. Kane Tung has extensive personal and professional experience managing and bringing fulfillment to individuals and caregivers of Developmental Disabilities. Kane’s style was also profoundly shaped by his years of work with Older Adults at Long Island Jewish Hospital and nursing homes as he specialized in Grief and End of Life cases bringing all events of a client’s life together to make sense of it honestly and genuinely. It was during that time he first came up with integrating Virtual Reality with therapy to the benefit and wonder of his clients.
Forming VRCAPS, Kane is excited to be marrying his clinical practice and wide spectrum of experiences from being a Producer at SyFy Channel and SONY, as well as a newspaper journalist and playwright to his considerable work with the early Anime and Gaming community.

Nathan "Nth" Bar Fields
Director of Operations
Nth is the director of operations for VRCaPS, where he oversees VRCaPS’ special projects, like our forthcoming VR Therapy OS program and developing our village in New York for autistic and gifted people.
He has an extensive background working with neurodivergent populations as either a board director on-, grant writer for-, or project developer for- numerous organizations that focus on autistic, ADHD, dyslexic, gifted, or twice-exceptional populations. He is himself neurodivergent and has developed or evaluated numerous programs for cognitive ability organizations like GHF Learners, Elysian Trust, Prometheus Society, and numerous schools and bootcamps.
It is through his work with these organizations that he recognized the lack of much needed psychological and emotional counseling services for neuroatypical people, and that revelation led him ultimately join VRCaPS as a way to address the issue.
Outside of working on the business side for VRCaPS, Nth is formerly a neurofeedback technician who principally worked with kids diagnoses with ADHD.
Xinyu Sun, LAC
Mental Health Counselor
Xinyu is a Mental Health Counselor graduate from The Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness at NYU. She has had a diverse cultural experience growing up in mainland China, living in Hong Kong for four years, and now studying at NYU, giving her a focus on diversity and working with individuals’ unique experience in their sociocultural contexts as well as through different cultural and life experiences.
She has a focus on identifying where you are in your life journey and believes that the therapy room is not only a safe environment for clients to process their past experiences but also a place to work on the here-and-now. Xinyu is able to conduct therapy in English, Mandarin and Cantonese.
