Kane Tung, Ph.D.
As a father of a child with Autism 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.
