About Me: Dana Manning

Finding a therapist that’s just right for you can feel overwhelming, so it’s important to remember that you have already made the most challenging step in deciding to consider and commit to working on your mental health.

As a therapist, my specialties include psychodynamic therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), interpersonal psychotherapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I have experience working with clients who deal with a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, interpersonal relationships, mindfulness, life transitions, OCD, stress, and phobias. I’ve worked primarily with adults, including those who are on the autism spectrum and individuals with ADHD. I also have experience working with the LGBTQIA+ community, providing a safe and affirming space for their unique concerns and experiences.

I invite you to take the next step and embark on this transformative journey together. It would be an honor to help guide and support you along the way.

My Unique Approach to Therapy

Using a client-centered and collaborative approach helps us work together to identify your therapeutic goals and create a path to reach them based on your unique circumstances and personality– essentially, I find that therapy must be catered to the individual.

I have always been drawn to understanding the factors that contribute to an individual’s internal experience and struggles. Meeting new people and playing a part in their journey is immensely rewarding for me, even if our sessions span just one to three meetings. Being able to assist in any capacity you need brings me a great sense of fulfillment.

My academic background in biology and psychology enables me to take a holistic approach in therapy. I believe it’s important to understand you in the context of your multifaceted life and environment to conduct therapy that truly meets your needs. I am generally positive, empathetic, and warm, and these qualities translate into my presence in the therapeutic space.

Additionally, 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?

Specialized & Extended Training

My academic journey has equipped me with the knowledge and experiences needed to serve my clients effectively. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences and Developmental Psychology, which allows me to take a holistic and integrative approach to understanding my clients’ experiences. Additionally, I earned a Master of Science in General Clinical Psychology at Eastern Michigan University, where I focused on both research and clinical work.

Primarily, my experience is working with individuals exposed to trauma, interpersonal issues, and mood dysregulation, such as anxiety and depression. I also have significant experience working with individuals with autism across various environments.

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.
