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.

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.
