Dr. Whikehart is a board-certified psychiatrist, who has been practicing in Westchester County for over 20 years.

He has experience diagnosing and treating a wide variety of psychiatric conditions in adults and has particular expertise in depression, anxiety and bipolar illness. Treatment is approached as a collaboration between patient and doctor, beginning with a thorough evaluation and an open discussion about diagnostic possibilities and therapeutic options.

While Dr. Whikehart’s practice focuses primarily on medication management, follow-up visits- typically 30 minutes in length also include extensive education and ongoing supportive therapy. If a more intensive level of therapy appears to be needed, a psychotherapist can be added to your treatment team.
