Kenneth J. Lichtman, M.D.

Dr Kenneth J LichtmanI am a Board Certified psychiatrist and a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. Having completed a psychodynamically-oriented psychiatric residency, I found that other treatment modalities were necessary to meet the needs of our patients. I have explored EMDR, hypnotherapy for specific disorders, and have recently added cognitive behavioral therapy to my treatment armamentarium. Although my area of expertise remains general psychiatry, I have become extremely interested in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of Bipolar Disorder. I have an in-depth knowledge of psychotropic medication, specifically in the recent advances in combination, augmentation, and supplementation strategies, including the use of light therapies and vitamin supplementation.

Rachel Markowitz, M.D.

Dr Rachel MarkowitzI am a board certified psychiatrist and completed my residency training at NYU Medical Center in 2003. I continued on at NYU for an additional year to complete a fellowship and Board Certification in Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry.

This was my formal training.

My informal training began long ago, in High School study hall, senior year, 3rd period. A girl named Amy began talking to me about her woes with her boyfriend Kevin. I found her story interesting. I barely knew Amy, but I began to empathize with her, with her feelings, her sadness, and her struggles.
