Practice Philosophy:

Dr. Lincoln treats child, adolescent and young adult patients, providing evaluations to determine whether psychotropic medication might be appropriate and helpful. An empathic listener, she asks a lot of questions to fully understand a patient’s story. As part of her assessment, she may request that patients (or their parents) complete standardized assessment instruments, and often reviews additional information from schools or previous psychological testing. Before prescribing and during the course of medication treatment, Dr. Lincoln will order routine laboratory tests and monitor the results to ensure optimal health. Dr. Lincoln values close collaboration with the patient’s primary therapist in order to fully appreciate life situations and to enhance medical outcomes. Dr. Lincoln tries to offer parents and families a realistic assessment of their child’s situation, and strategies to help each child reach their potential.

Areas of Expertise:

Dr. Lincoln specializes in treating children, adolescents, and young adults with anxiety, ADHD, behavioral issues and mood disorders. She is experienced at treating patients with concurrent medical and emotional health concerns, having worked in a pediatric rehabilitation setting among others. She utilizes her knowledge of psychopharmacology to determine the appropriate psychotropic medication for each person. When prescribing, she takes into consideration symptoms, risk/benefits, side effects, and ease of administration, in addition to concurrent medical issues. With young children, she often incorporates interactive play and uses age-appropriate tools to assess personality, level of maturity, and psychological health. With teens and young adults, she offers medication consultations and works closely with referring therapists in order to optimize outcomes.

Experience and Training:

Dr. Lincoln is board certified in adult, child and adolescent psychiatry. She completed her adult psychiatric training at NYU-Bellevue and her Child/Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York. Her past and ongoing work has been with medically fragile and/or socially disadvantaged youth in a variety of settings. She is currently pursuing a certificate in Narrative Medicine through Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies.
