I’ve been a patient with Start My Wellness for about 6 months now & I’ve had nothing but good things to say & I recommend to all my friends. They make me feel heard and understood & I am very happy with my service here.

I have really enjoyed my experience here. I had some trouble finding a therapist that I meshed with before. I had gone through 3 therapists elsewhere and was very discouraged. I began my journey with Start My Wellness with minimal expectations, but those have continuously been exceeded. This is the first therapist who has formed objectives/goals with me, referenced media (apps, videos) that really helped me, and actually taken the time to build a relationship where I feel very comfortable opening up. I am very grateful for my therapist, Brittany.

Start My Wellness is great! I work with Maria and she is amazing and has helped me improve so many aspects of my mental health, and sometimes even physical. I have recommended this establishment to many of my friends and co-workers and will continue to do so.

I've been seeing a therapist at Start My Wellness for a little under 6 months now and they have been great. I know for me personally, it is hard to take that first step to schedule an appointment. They make it super simple to do and once I did it I was able to meet my therapist the next day. They also accept insurance as well. Overall a great experience and would recommend them to anyone looking to start their mental health journey 🙂

Every interaction I have had with the folks at Start My Wellness has been nothing but positive. From their onboarding process to making sure you're connected with the best member of their team, their process is straight-forward and easy to accomplish. Working with someone for the last few months has been a very helpful for me.

Kim Krummrey is simply amazing. She’s very transparent and listens closely to the information given. My family has been in Kim’s care prior to her new role at Start My Wellness and has been so compassionate to us over the years. Her care definitely leaves an amazing impression.

Everyone at Start My Wellness is incredibly friendly. My therapist Jordan has been immensely helpful and is the exact style of therapy I’ve been needing. She asks the best questions, is patient, listens so well and makes me feel extremely comfortable as I process life. I am beyond grateful for Start My Wellness. I highly recommend!!!

I have met with Stephanie via Zoom and the entire process was so smooth. It is super convenient to be able to meet and set up my profile electronically and not having to worry about traffic or commute time. Stephanie is super friendly and understanding. I highly recommend utilizing Start My Wellness.
