Liza Bové, MSW., LCSWR., LICSW.

Liza Bové joins the team after 26 years in the field of Social Welfare, as a psychotherapist in direct practice and directing Article 31 Community Mental Health clinics in the Hudson Valley. She is a graduate of Barnard College, studied Organizational Psychology at Teachers College of Columbia University, and graduated with an MSW from Yeshiva University.

Her training ranges from Minuchin Structural Family Therapy to intensives in ASD, Couples, and Child issues, all with an underlying frame of Trauma-Informed care. She has extensive experience in running mental health clinics with both inner city and rural populations and has also worked for over 9 years in the Psychiatric Emergency Department at the local hospital. Her specialty has been Complex, Chronic PTSD, working with Active Military, their families, DEA and other first responders, and abuse victims. Her work with students on the Spectrum has spanned twenty-seven years working with students at FEGS, and BOCES, in public schools and group home settings. Her most recent position has been working as a teacher and mentor of graduate students at the SUNY School of Social Welfare, helping those students adjust to real life in their Field internships.

I look forward to becoming an integral part of the student support team at the campus and hope to help students achieve their goals for independent living. I intend to harvest my mentorship experiences at Barnard, SUNY Albany, and at my old camp, Belvoir Terrace to serve the Berkshire population
