About

Hi! My name is Marja Evenden, and I practice psychiatry in Philadelphia area. After a long hospital career, I am currently growing my private practice. I would like to offer my extensive professional training to help you to feel better and to improve your quality of life, and to help you to thrive. My special interests: diagnostic work up, biological psychiatry, and personalized medicine/care but naturally I am well rounded to master the whole spectrum of psychiatric treatments. The topic of my Ph.D. work was benzodiazepines, and their actions and interactions with other centrally active medications on human skilled performance
I have a long training in medicine, psychiatry, therapies and treatment of dual diagnoses. I have worked with the key opinion leaders of mood disorders, and addictive behaviors, both at U of Pennsylvania, PHiladelphia, PA, and Karolinska Institute of Clinical Neurosciences, Sweden, and held the position of Medical Director at Penn O'Brien Center 2013-2019.
My goal is to always offer the best possible individual care for my patients. I want you to get the right treatment in place in order to help you to thrive and to reach your goals. Together, we evaluate your situation in depth, and figure out the right treatment and way of life just for you. These days, wellness of health care personnel is in my thoughts,
