Maryam Eskandari, M.D.
I see my patients first and foremost in a humanistic way as people, not simply as patients or their diagnoses. As such, I offer patients comprehensive treatment, not just from a neurobiological perspective, but also a from a humanistic one. I approach my patients with compassion, respect and a commitment to confidentiality. Some of the biggest obstacles to attainting self-awareness and self-acceptance are deeply buried feelings of guilt and shame. Working with a psychotherapist you trust, who is curious, empathic and understanding can help you expand your capacity for self-curiosity, self-awareness and self-acceptance, which in turn can help you expand your capacity to: •examine, understand & change problematic patterns in your life; •make choices freely & actively, instead of reactively; •ultimately lead a more thoughtful, authentic & fulfilling life.
My specialties include: •Depression; •Anxiety; •Cancer diagnosis, treatment, living & coping with cancer; •Being a family member, friend, parent, sibling, child or caregiver of someone with cancer; •Self-confidence & self-esteem issues; •Relationship & interpersonal issues; •Existential issues (finding meaning in our lives knowing that we do not live forever); •Issues of death & dying.
My therapeutic approach weaves together traditional psychodynamic psychotherapy with a humanistic existential perspective.
