About Me: Laila Marashi

Laila Marashi earned her Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) from Michigan State University and is currently a doctoral candidate at MSU. She is dual certified as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and a Family Nurse Practitioner. She began her career in pediatrics and expanded her scope of practice to treat patients throughout their lifespan. Laila has experience working in a wide variety of clinical settings and enjoys the personal approach that an outpatient setting affords her.

She specializes in pediatric, adolescent, and adult psychiatry across diverse diagnoses. She works closely with her patients’ and their families to develop individualized treatment plans specific to their medical and psychiatric needs. Her treatment approach is holistic, and patient centered.

When appropriate, Laila believes that medication treatment in mental health is just one piece in the puzzle of achieving optimal wellbeing and enjoys working collaboratively with other members of the care team to achieve this goal.

My 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 Laila Marashi 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 Laila from others in the field and allows her to provide the highest quality of service to patients.

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.

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.
