Eileen A Zhivago, MD
Specialty: Child/Adolescent Psychiatry & Adult Psychiatry
Board certified in both adult psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry, Dr. Eileen Zhivago offers comprehensive assessments and treatment plans for all adult and childhood disorders at her private practices in Westfield and Allendale.
Conservative, Evidence-Based Approach
Dr. Zhivago takes a conservative yet dynamic and modern approach when developing evidence-based strategies that will ensure positive outcomes for patients. Her comfortable, spacious office is relaxed and beautifully decorated to help patients feel at home. Dr. Zhivago is currently providing virtual appointments to ensure patient safety, which allows her to see patients from the comfort of their own homes.
“I’m a huge believer in reducing the stigma of mental health—there’s no shame in walking into a doctor’s office to get a strep test when you’re feeling under the weather, and the same should apply when seeking help to improve yourself emotionally and psychologically,” she says.
Helping Families Thrive
Dr. Zhivago specializes in working with adults, children, adolescents and their families to help them better understand and manage any challenges that may arise in their lives. She’s committed to partnering and communicating with each child’s team—their therapist, pediatrician and school. “I treat each child as a unique individual, and it’s my goal to help them thrive in whatever they’re doing in life,” she says.
Dr. Zhivago completed her residency in psychiatry at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School, where she also served as chief resident. She completed her fellowship training in child and adolescent psychiatry at Mount Sinai-St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City.
“I love working with kids because they’re so fresh and honest—and helping them grow up to become fulfilled, productive adults is incredibly rewarding to me,” she says.
