Kyle M. Haney, Ph.D. | Staff Psychologist

Kyle Haney earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Hofstra University. Prior to attending Hofstra, she graduated from Villanova University summa cum laude with a B.A. and M.S. in psychology. Dr. Haney treats adolescents, young adults, and adults using CBT and DBT evidence-based treatments for emotion dysregulation, suicidality, anxiety disorders, trauma, and eating disorders. She has received specialized training in the treatment of suicidality, self-harm, anxiety, and trauma through years of clinical practica and supervision.

Dr. Haney completed her postdoctoral fellowship, here, at CBT/DBT Associates and completed her pre-doctoral, APA-accredited, clinical internship at Princeton House Behavioral Health, where she participated in rotations at both the Intensive Outpatient Women’s program and Intensive Outpatient General Adult Program.  During her internship year, she gained more training utilizing DBT for adult women who struggled with trauma, suicidality, and eating disordered behavior.  Additionally, she gained extensive training delivering CBT-based approaches, such as Prolonged Exposure, to both men and women suffering from PTSD.

Prior to Dr. Haney’s internship training, she held externships at CBT/DBT Associates, at the outpatient department of Long Island Jewish Zucker Hillside Hospital and on the Personality Disorders Unit of New York Presbyterian Hospital, West Chester Division. While at CBT/DBT Associates and at Zucker Hillside, she provided group and individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) treatment to a diverse population of adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disordered behavior, and personality disordered symptoms. At New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Haney provided more intensive group therapy and individual work to adults with personality and mood disorders. As a doctoral student at Hofstra, Dr. Haney saw patients at both the university's DBT clinic and in the Austism Spectrum Disorders clinic where she treated both adults and adolescents in individual and group formats. She is a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

Dr. Haney's research interests include evaluating the effectiveness of DBT skills in the enhancement of positive social interactions in high functioning adolescents on the autism spectrum. She is exploring how these skills can be adapted for a more unified social skills protocol for adolescents with this diagnosis. Other research interests have included utilizing cognitive techniques to improve health eating behaviors, as well as using DBT for indivuduals diagnosed with an eating disordr.
