About Isabel Haag
Life can be difficult, and the emotions and thoughts that come with it can be overwhelming. I can help you navigate the challenges of relationships and family concerns, as well as the stress of school or work. Together, we will help you understand what you are feeling and use that knowledge to bring positive changes to your life.
I have clinical experience working with both adolescents and adults with various mental health concerns including anxiety, depression, and substance use. My therapeutic approach utilizes psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing. I graduated with my B.A. in psychology from Oakland University and my Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University.
As a therapist, it is important that I create an environment that is open and welcoming and tailored to the needs of each client. It is also important to create a working relationship that fosters trust, empathy, and respect. I want each person to feel heard and supported while trying to understand themselves and the situations in which they are going through.
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 Isabel Haag 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 Isabel from others in the field and allows her to provide the highest quality of service to patients.
