About Me: Nicole Massoud

I was initially inspired to become a therapist after witnessing firsthand the positive effects of mental healthcare on someone’s life. I wanted to be a person who offers fresh perspectives and effective strategies to help people improve their quality of life.

As an experienced therapist today, I have worked with clients ranging from nine to thirty-nine years old, addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, and more. I strongly emphasize unconditional positive regard, client self-determination, and the importance of feeling safe and connected with others.

I have found great success in working with patients who have struggled with self-esteem issues resulting from abusive relationships. It is incredibly rewarding for me to witness my patients rediscover themselves, regain a sense of identity, establish boundaries, and recognize their worth.

I am here to listen to and validate you. I believe in a collaborative therapeutic relationship. Just as you learn coping skills from me, I have a lot to learn from you, as YOU are the expert on your lived experience. My job is to provide evidence-based mental health treatment, but you are the one doing the healing!

My Unique Approach to Therapy

I believe in a strengths-based, culturally sensitive, and trauma-informed approach to therapy. I come from a family of immigrants and a collectivist culture. This definitely influences my practice because I emphasize the importance of connection. My experiences have shaped my belief that feeling connected is a fundamental human need. Consequently, I work hard to create a secure and nurturing environment for my clients to explore their emotions and experiences.

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?

I am committed to helping my clients overcome their challenges while recognizing and celebrating their strengths along the way. It is truly an honor for me to be a part of their healing, growth, and pursuit of happiness.

Specialized & Extended Training

I hold advanced degrees in Psychology and Social Work, with a focus on interpersonal practice and mental health. My studies have provided me with clinical experience working with children, teens, and families. Additionally, I have experience peer-mentoring young adults and addressing various mental health challenges, including depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and ADHD.

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.
