About Me: Stephanie Beaton

As your therapist, I strive to assist you in achieving goals and supporting you through the adversities that you face. Finding a good, compatible therapist can be difficult. I am dedicated to helping each client develop relevant, goal oriented coping strategies and an approach that best suits their needs. Each person is different, and I am flexible in finding ways of working together that are best for you. I am passionate and dedicated to the mental health field, I believe each person is more than their symptoms and should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe the relationship between client and therapist is crucial to effective treatment, and I want every client that comes into my office to feel safe, welcomed and supported. I primarily specialize in adults, but I have experience working with adolescents as well.

I graduated with a BA in Psychology and received my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Michigan, where I specialized in the area of Interpersonal Practice with a concentration in Mental Health. I have experience working in community mental health, where I worked with clients with a range of backgrounds, symptoms, and identities, of whom I have been honored to advocate for, support, and assist in reaching their goals. I also have experience as a support group facilitator for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, where I have provided support for a wide range of adults who have various diagnoses. My practice draws from a variety of fields including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Self-Compassion, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology, and Psychodynamic Therapy from a trauma-sensitive approach.

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 Stephanie Beaton 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 Stephanie 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.

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.
