Every interaction I’ve had with the administrative staff and therapists at Start My Wellness has been warm, helpful and caring. I highly recommend this therapy practice.

Reviews – Dr. Anton Babushkin – Therapist

I would recommend Dr. Babushkin, with the highest enthusiasm possible, to any parent like myself who is seeking psychotherapy for their child.

Reviews – Dr. Anton Babushkin – Therapist

Dr. Babushkin runs a professional clinical practice where all of the therapists are required to pursue ongoing, vigorous training to ensure high quality service.

Reviews – Dr. Anton Babushkin – Therapist

Sometimes it’s important to let people know you appreciate them – Dr. Babushkin, thank you for all the countless ways you’ve helped me navigate life. You’ve been more helpful than you know.

My experience with Samantha has

My experience with Samantha has been cultivating and enlightening. Her knowledge and understanding of people and the everyday struggles intertwined with tragedy that many of us have faced in life, sets her above the rest. I have had the opportunity to work with Samantha for almost a year now and I cannot imagine life without having her guidance. Her compassion and professionalism are transparent with every encounter. I honestly cannot begin to convey the blessing I have in Samantha Voss but I will continue to thank my lucky stars (everyday) for her.

Very professional and smart therapist.

Very professional and smart therapist. I enjoy working with her.

My visit with Dr. Babushkin was eye-opening even though, I was a little hesitant. The atmosphere and tone he sets made it that much easier to relax.

Reviews – Dr. Anton Babushkin – Therapist

Dr. Babushkin makes consistent efforts to offer top-notch mental health therapy at his clinic. He offers continuous opportunities for the clinicians to advance their knowledge and skills so he can ensure patients receive quality care.

Reviews – Dr. Anton Babushkin – Therapist

I cannot emphasize how important and impactful his skills (Dr. Babushkin) have been in helping my son recover from a series of traumatic emotional events that greatly affected his outlook on life.

Reviews – Scott Tomey – Therapist

This is a great clinic and I highly recommend Scott. He’s very knowledgeable and really cares about helping you get through whatever you might be experiencing.

Reviews – Dr. Anton Babushkin – Therapist

Dr. Anton Babushkin gave me material that’s specific, and applicable, to my situation. I look forward to our next session.

Reviews – Start My Wellness Troy, MI

Fantastic customer service, very helpful and responsive.

Annamarie is amazing ! She

Annamarie is amazing! She is so understanding and I have had previous therapists that let me talk and all they do is agree with what I’m saying. I can tell she actually cares and listens which makes such a huge difference. The advice she has given me has helped me see my ADHD in a different way and not beating myself up over it thinking that it’s not normal because it is and she has helped me understand that!
