David’s (He/Him) practice incorporates knowledge and techniques from various therapeutic modalities. He can conduct therapy sessions in English and Spanish. He is passionate in listening to a client’s story on who they were, and what story they would like to have today and tomorrow. He has vast experience working with people who are challenged by depression and/or anxiety and people who have a history of self-harm and suicidal ideation. He has experience working with clients in overcoming sexual abuse/intimate partner violence, intergenerational and racial trauma. He enjoys working with people within the Queer and LGBTQIA+ community and provides an affirming environment. He is passionate in supporting trans and nonbinary folks of all ages.

As a therapist that is social justice-oriented, he wants to include relevant identifying factors into the therapy room such as culture, sexual orientation, race, gender and expression, religion, family relationships/history, etc. His style comes down to working through the lens of somatic psychotherapy… meaning that his understanding of our emotional health is a response to internal and external stressors, and tension or trauma that is kept in our bodies. Other theoretical frameworks that he uses are narrative therapy, experiential therapy, emotionally-focused therapy, family systems, Gottman’s Method and structural Family therapy.

He is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), and received his Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and an Advanced Certificate in Marriage and Family therapy (MFT) at Long Island University in Brooklyn, New York. He has desires to be trained in EMDR and to provide Ketamine-Assisted Therapy. He continued his work in a non-profit organization in Greenpoint Brooklyn providing therapy at a substance abuse outpatient treatment program for adolescents, adults and their significant others. Additionally, he provided virtual in-home therapy parent coaching to families across the country.

In his free time, he enjoys to ride his bike to different restaurants with friends, host dinners/gatherings, take part in some form of painting/pottery, dancing in nightlife and traveling to new countries.

Kyle McEvoy (He/Him) is the Founder and President of Collaborative, a multidisciplinary clinical community focused on establishing effective, evidence-based treatment founded on an adaptive mentalization-based treatment model.

Kyle holds advanced training in mentalization-based (MBT) and adaptive mentalization-based integrative treatment (AMBIT) through the Anna Freud Centre for Children and Families. He specializes in complex attachment and identity-related disorders such as borderline, avoidant, antisocial, dependent, and obsessive-compulsive personalities, along with gender-diverse individuals.

He focuses on understanding the individual to engage in a comprehensive execution of a person’s desires, wants, and needs. Kyle has participated in the client’s long-standing change from maladaptive behaviors, thoughts, and feelings through these scientific approaches. Kyle will implore you to participate in your treatment and discuss the techniques actively. He has helped people struggling with substances, explore individual identity (LGBTQIA+), cope with psychological/cognitive/developmental disorders, accept medical diagnoses, and overcome sexual abuse/intimate partner violence.

In addition to Kyle’s direct clinical work, he is a prominent national speaker, writer, and educator of the mental health community in efforts to deepen provider and patient understandings of mentalization, identity formation, and clinically challenging circumstances. In addition, Kyle continues to bolster his clinical approach through continued education and research of personality development from a psychoanalytic perceptive as a student of the Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies.

Kyle believes practical and engaging clinical support has the power to invoke change. Therefore, he goes beyond the typical therapeutic approach when working with you.
