Dr. Kogut is a Clinical Psychologist, licensed by the State of Ohio since 1977, when he earned his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Toledo. Shortly thereafter, he founded the mental health practice that developed into Central Behavioral Healthcare, of which he is President. He developed and co-facilitates the CoPE program, which assists divorcing and divorced parents to refocus on the welfare of their children rather than on conflict between them.
Dr. Kogut specializes in psychotherapy for phobias, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, panic disorder, depression, relationship issues, and marital problems. He is an Examiner for the Bureau of Workers Compensation and the Industrial Commission of Ohio, where he serves as a consultant for disability determination. Because of his many years of collaboration with primary care physicians, he receives referrals to help people suffering from both medical and psychological disorders and assists with adjustment to chronic illness.

He was the director of Behavioral Sciences for the Riverside Hospital Family Practice Center and for several years was the Director of Behavioral Medicine and The Phobia Treatment Center associated with that hospital. In his role as the Director of Behavioral Sciences, he was responsible for training family practice physicians about mental health and psychological issues. Phobias continue to be a special focus of his expertise.
