Covert, PsyD, ABPP

Lisenced Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Hello and welcome!

All of us encounter times when our lives don't look like we expected they would.

Whether a relationship has dissolved, you've received a diagnosis, lost a loved one, the career you longed for isn't materializing---or you're dealing with other game-changers---your journey MATTERS and the way that you walk through this difficult season matters.


Offering online psychotherapy to Clients in NY, TN, & FL, I specialize in helping adults (individuals, couples, and groups) who are struggling with anxiety, grief, and life transition issues. I am also a contract therapist for Onsite Workshops near Nashville, TN & The Oaks in Southern CA—both are personal growth/wellness retreat centers where I lead groups, as well as individual and couples intensives.

On a personal note, I've been married 19 years and became a parent to our two incredible kids by way of domestic adoption. Familiar with caring for special needs and nurturing relationships through the ups and downs, I'm also a cancer survivor and know that living wholeheartedly after transitions is possible. Outside of work, I enjoy playing in the snow/water/woods with my family, cooking, and writing.
