Licensed Clinical Psychologist Director of Psychological Services
Dr. Lichtin is a graduate of Vassar College and earned her doctorate in Clinical Psychology, with specialization in Neuropsychology, from the Graduate Center of CUNY. She trained at the NYU Child Study Center, Bellevue Hospital Center, and completed her clinical internship at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she split her time between the ADHD Center and the Seaver Autism Center. Dr. Lichtin has a background in ADHD research, having studied with some of the leading researchers in the field, investigating the neuroanatomical correlates of ADHD, factors predicting outcome in young children with the disorder, and the development of novel, neurodevelopmentally-informed treatments to improve the developmental trajectory of ADHD.
Dr. Lichtin specializes in neuropsychological assessment, as well as the psychosocial (i.e., non-medication) treatment of ADHD and related disorders, including anxiety disorders and pervasive developmental disorders. In psychotherapy she draws on behavioral, cognitive, systems, and coaching techniques, informed by neuropsychology and evidence-based practice. Dr. Lichtin is one of a small number of therapists in the NYC area who specialize in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for adolescent and adult ADHD. She enjoys working with children (as young as preschool-age), adolescents, and adults. Treatment planning is highly individualized and invariably multifaceted, often involving consultation with schools and meetings with parents and spouses.
