About Me: Sam Miners

Embarking on the journey of therapy requires trust and finding the right fit is essential. I approach therapy as a sacred space, where you can feel safe to explore your innermost thoughts and emotions. I prioritize building a strong therapeutic relationship, tailored to your unique needs and experiences.

My academic journey includes earning a Bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University concentrating on Psychology, followed by a Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University. Throughout my professional career, I’ve honed my skills in working with diverse populations, specializing in anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and related challenges.

In our sessions, my goal is to empower you to navigate life’s complexities with confidence and resilience. I believe in your inherent ability to overcome obstacles and thrive. Together, we’ll explore strategies to enhance your well-being and cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself.

It would be an honor to walk alongside you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

My Unique Approach to Therapy

My therapy practice prioritizes personalized care, integrating holistic approaches to address both symptoms and underlying causes of distress. I foster a collaborative partnership where clients are empowered to leverage their strengths and cultural identities in their healing journey. Believing in the significance of community for wellbeing, I emphasize the importance of connections in nurturing mental health. Therapy with me is a sacred space, free of judgment, where clients feel safe and validated. Continuous professional development ensures that I offer the highest quality of care to those I serve.

Specialized & Extended Training

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.
