About Annamarie Green

Therapy can help you rebuild and strengthen your skills. With my assistance, you can recognize and understand how life events and experiences influence your important decisions and point of view. This new knowledge can allow you to become the healthiest version of yourself.

Sometimes life requires us to build rosters of people that can help us navigate the different paths on which we find ourselves. I am excited to be on your team and work towards creating the most beautiful, authentic, and fulfilling life for you.

I have provided support to organizations and professionals in many industries. I have experience in family therapy, mental health treatment practices, and assisting individuals to adapt to their life transitions. For example, I have supported parents with their postpartum adjustments, young professionals with work-life balance, and persons of color. My strategies are strength-based and I lead with sensitivity, creativity, empathy, and compassion.

I am proud to say I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from The University of Pittsburgh and my Bachelor’s Degree in General Social Work from Saint Francis University. As a person of color, these experiences led my passion for helping individuals transition and adapt to changing environments to meet their goals.

Some fun personal facts about me: I love to run and participate in CrossFit. I avidly appreciate traveling, artsy activities, and trying new foods – especially in the baked goods category.

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 Annamarie Green 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 Annamarie from others in the field and allows her to provide the highest quality of service to patients.

Start My Wellness definitely receives 5 stars. Their staff are incredibly helpful and want you to get the care you need. I did start by seeing Scott, but found him to not be the best fit for me. This can be a potentially uncomfortable situation for someone who already has anxiety on the best of days. Between talking with Laila who I see for medication and WISH I could have her as my actual therapist, and Mike Misiak at the main office, we are all in alignment on what my treatment plan is going forward. I am so impressed with Start My Wellness, which I found through the program my work started, I am going to be doing a full company presentation to talk about my experience and how SMW really does a great job of taking the stigma out of therapy! Thank you to everyone!

I have not been here but I go to the previous employer of Abigail (Platt) Schellhammer… I’m very saddened she is gone. I have seen her last 6 years. She is so professional and personable. I prayed she stayed in family practice in my area. I may just drive to Ferndale🥰Wishing her happiness. Also letting SMW know how lucky they are to have her. I’ve went to her replacement this week and let’s just say she CANNOT be replaced. I left crying after realizing I lost the BEST practitioner I could ask for. UGH!!!! Best of luck to her though she deserve the world.
