I received an affordable, thorough psychological assessment by Dr. Bloom. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and insightful. I very much appreciate the service he offers because full neuropsychological testing is expensive and nearly unobtainable for people with certain types of insurance. I paid out of pocket and it was worth every cent.

It's not normal for me to write reviews. The service that I received from the staff at Start my wellness, was absolutely amazing! The response and help from Rayven at the front desk was extremely helpful. She was able to walk through the process without making me feel rushed or pressured. She was knowledgable of the everything I need to be seen in a timely and professional manner. The treatment team was caring and warm. I didn't feel like "Just another patient", or embarrassed about my conditions. Thank you all for helping me.

I love talking with Laila. I feel really comfortable and she seems genuinely kind. I look forward to my appointments with my psychiatrist now thanks to her, which is something I never thought I would say.

Wonderful practice. Provide primarily virtual sessions which is preferred for me. Dr. Marashi is very knowledgable and helped me finally for the first time in my adult life nail down a combination of medications to help manage my PMDD and ADHD struggles. I could not have achieved everything I have in the past year without her support and knowledge. I recommend to everyone that struggles with their mental health.

During therapy, family members work with a therapist to uncover the underlying issues that are causing disharmony in the home like feelings of self-doubt, fears of failure, fears of fully utilizing one’s potential, and long-standing self-criticism. These underlying issues can manifest as and/or be related to:

Typically, the first several sessions are used by the therapist to obtain information and better understand what is causing issues within family relationships. The therapist’s job is to use their training to help family members make sense of these difficulties and create a clear-enough plan for how to resolve those symptoms. This can take several sessions, however, the couple should start to feel gradually understood by the therapist and should have some sense of what the therapy can accomplish.

We accept Blue Cross Blue Shield, Blue Care Network, Aetna, Priority Health and private pay clients. Self-pay sessions are $150 per session, depending on the therapist. Please call our office with any questions at 248-514-4955.
