At Advanced Psychiatric Associates, board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists Drs. Wilbert Yeung and Eileen Zhivago and licensed psychologist Dr. Amanda Carlin provide psychiatric evaluations, psychotherapy and psychopharmacology services in a relaxed, comfortable private office. The practice recently welcomed psychiatrist Dr. Nicole Guanci.
The doctors treat children, teens, adults and families for anxiety, depression, OCD, mood and eating disorders, ADHD and behavioral issues.
Making Patient Comfort a Priority
“Parents are often hesitant about taking their child to a psychiatrist, so we strive to make patients comfortable, share our expertise and knowledge and empower them to make the best decisions for their family,” Dr. Yeung says. Healing begins with an evaluation and discussion of available treatments, including therapy and medication options.
“We help patients and parents feel like educated consumers, and ease any fears they have about psychiatric treatment,” Dr. Zhivago says. The doctors partner with families and schools to advocate for patients on their road to recovery. “It’s important that patients feel supported, feel part of the process and learn life skills they can always carry with them,” Dr. Carlin says.
Extensive Training and Deep Expertise
Affiliated with Overlook and Morristown Medical Centers, Dr. Yeung attended Harvard University and Rutgers-RWJ Medical School and completed his residency and fellowship at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Dr. Zhivago completed her residency at Rutgers-NJ Medical School, where she serves as an associate professor, and fellowship at Mount Sinai-St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center. A certified provider of Family Based Treatment for eating and feeding disorders, Dr. Carlin earned her PhD in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
