At Advanced Psychiatric Associates, board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Wilbert Yeung and licensed psychologist Dr. Amanda Carlin provide psychiatric evaluations, psychotherapy and psychopharmacology services in a relaxed, comfortable private office. The doctors are experienced in treating children, teens, adults and families for anxiety, OCD, depression, mood disorders, ADHD, behavioral issues and eating disorders. 

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. “We help patients and parents feel like educated consumers and ease any fears they may have about psychiatric treatment.”

“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. Healing begins with an evaluation and discussion of available treatments, including therapy and medication options. The doctors partner with families, schools and other providers to advocate for patients on their road to recovery.

Extensive Training and Deep Expertise

Dr. Yeung attended Harvard University and Rutgers-RWJ Medical School before completing his residency and fellowship at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. He is a past president of the New Jersey Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (NJCCAP).

A certified provider of family-based treatment for eating and feeding disorders, Dr. Carlin earned her PhD in clinical psychology from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Prior to entering private practice, Dr. Carlin supervised trainees at the Adolescent Eating Disorder Program at Overlook Medical Center.
