About Dr. Babushkin
As a highly trained and thoughtful therapist, I have a strong interest in helping you. Many people experience suffering and feel stuck in their efforts to get better. If you would like to find relief from your difficulties, I can help you. My approach is focused on compassionately working with you to reduce symptoms and achieve more emotional freedom and happiness.
I have successfully helped many clients develop inner strengths and resources that allow them to live richer, freer, and more rewarding lives. My advanced clinical training enables me to offer a therapeutic approach that is individually tailored to each person’s unique concerns.
I teach at Wayne State University School of Social Work and consult/present at various area businesses and organizations. My specialized training through the Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute allows me to help people from various backgrounds (students, academic/business professionals, people in the medical field, etc).
Unique Approach to Therapy
Connecting with each client is a vital part of my practice, unlike some providers in mental health, I view each person as important and not just “a number“. I find that checking in regularly with clients about their goals and current satisfaction helps foster a trusting client/provider relationship focused on individual growth. Also, I find it important to work with each person in identifying any barriers that may be present which could hinder therapy and medication from “doing their job“. I firmly believe that positive mental health and well-being does not happen in “a vacuum”, but many factors affect this, therefore a holistic approach is required to achieve lasting results.
