About Claudia Cacciato

Hello! I’d like to share with you a little bit about me as a psychotherapist. I have over 10 years of experience working with clients from a variety of backgrounds, dealing with different behavioral health issues. I work primarily with adults. I provide therapy with a non-judgmental mindset in collaboration with the client as I believe learning, problem-solving, and empowerment is best accomplished this way. My approach is holistic (body, mind, spirit), using a variety of approaches such as psychodynamic (insight-oriented), humanistic, strength-based, solution focused, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I have specialized training in working with clients who have experienced trauma or may be diagnosed with PTSD. I am devoted to offering the best quality of care to my clients, while continually increasing my education on various techniques, theory, and resources with that aim. I look very forward to working with you in your journey of health and happiness!

I earned my master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from Wayne State University in 2003, and I have a bachelor’s degrees in Social Work and in Psychology. I have a Post-Graduate Certificate in Social Work Practice with families and couples from Wayne State University completed in 2005.

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

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.

Start My Wellness is a great resource for your mental health. The admins are incredibly helpful with scheduling, insurance coverage questions and anything else you might need assistance with. So far, I have enjoyed every interaction with the staff.

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.
