About Shil Sengupta
If you are questioning the decisions you have made in life, feeling regret about the past, feeling stuck or uncertain about where you are headed professionally or in your personal relationships, I can help. I am highly empathic and caring, but also bring breadth and depth of training and experience to our therapeutic collaboration. I am passionate and curious about getting to know you and helping you find substantive approaches and solutions to the various challenges that you encounter.
I completed my BA at Stanford University with a concentration in philosophy and critical theory, Master’s in religious studies at Harvard University, and a Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University, an advanced psychotherapy fellowship (Psychiatric and Psychological Specialties) with intensive training in multiple theoretical methods/modalities.
I am uniquely trained in multiple theoretical modalities based on my intensive fellowship/training: cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and family systems therapy. I am trained to customize combinations to uniquely suit the person sitting across from me. I have been highly successful in achieving consistent, positive outcomes in my clients.
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 Shil Sengupta stand out is his high level of education and experience. He, 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 Shil from others in the field and allows him to provide the highest quality of service to patients.
