About Me: Amanda Tanner

Despite my love of being a nurse, I saw a more significant role I could play within the healthcare community and decided to pursue my Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP) at Michigan State University. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I can now have a larger impact on people’s lives by working closely with my patients to identify and achieve their treatment goals. I believe that mental health is vital for overall well-being from childhood through adulthood and specialize in the treatment of depression, anxiety, ADHD, and Bipolar Disorder, Type 2. To date, I’ve found the most success working with teenagers and adults.

My Unique Approach to Therapy

In my opinion, medication management is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to overall mental health. Educating patients regarding diet, exercise, and sleep routines is part of every visit. This approach is used to enhance a client’s overall well-being, not just one component.

I take a patient-centered approach to therapy and regularly ask for feedback from my patients. Common questions I ask are:

  • How is the treatment going?
  • Are we addressing issues you care about?
  • Do you feel you are making measurable progress?

Additionally, I educate patients about their diet, exercise, and sleep routines to enhance overall wellness. My kind, compassionate, and empathetic personality influences my practice, and I am passionate about seeing my patients flourish and improve their overall health.

Specialized & Extended Training

My high level of education and experience, along with my rigorous ongoing training and personal development, differentiates me from others in my field and enables me to create a warm and welcoming environment where patients can feel safe and comfortable expressing their challenges.

All Start My Wellness therapists attend at least 120 hours of extensive ongoing training and personal development each year on treating a range of mental health concerns. This rigorous instruction allows us to provide patients with the highest quality of service.

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.
