Kathleen Jung, MD
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at CUMC
I am a psychiatrist who treats children, adolescents, adults, and families. I assist patients with a range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, crises of identity, and interpersonal issues. I specialize in different forms of psychotherapy, including cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy. When the need arises, I also prescribe medication to enhance psychotherapy.
Relying on a developmental approach, my understanding of childhood and adolescence informs the treatment I offer to patients of all ages. By combining my expertise in both psychopharmacology and psychotherapy, I offer not only evidence-based psychiatric treatment but also a path towards long-lasting change and a deeper understanding of the mind.
I have a specific interest and expertise in treating individuals with ADHD, as well as those who have experienced problems related to immigration or adjusting to cultural differences. By understanding a patient's subjective experience and his/her goals, I offer individualized treatment focused on the person, rather than a disorder.
