About Aasha Sutton
The decision to begin your mental health journey can be the hardest, yet most beneficial decision of someone’s life. My psychotherapy style is meant to encourage a comfortable and non-judgmental environment for personal growth and self-awareness. My goal is to empower my clients in finding their own path and truth, as they understand it.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Sociology and my MSW, with a pathway of Interpersonal Practice in Integrated Health, Mental Health, & Substance Abuse, from the University of Michigan. Additionally, I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings, primarily working with children and adolescents. While in these settings, I have used a blend of modalities, including CBT AND DBT, and engaged in safety planning and family centered therapy.
Unique Approach to Therapy
What makes my approach unique? I am regularly asking for feedback from my patients. How is the treatment going? Are we addressing issues you care about? Do you feel you are making measurable progress? At Start My Wellness, we help people actively engage in making therapy as useful and user friendly as possible. We use this feedback to improve treatment methods, guide therapist training and improve overall customer satisfaction. We believe this patient-centered approach makes Start My Wellness world-class.
Specialized & Extended Training
What makes Aasha Sutton stand out is her high level of education and experience. She, along with all Start My Wellness therapists, attends at least 120 hours of extensive ongoing training and personal development per year in treating anxiety, depression, work stress, and relationship problems. This rigorous instruction differentiates Aasha from others in the field and allows her to provide the highest quality of service to patients.
