About Me: America Gasca

Starting therapy can be a little bit frightening, and overwhelming, but I will provide a supportive and nonjudgmental space where you will be able to explore your past experiences and current conflicts. It is a relief when you figure things out, put feelings into words, understand yourself, and build on your strengths.

As an immigrant, one of my biggest strengths is my ability to understand people who come from different backgrounds and my genuine interest in getting to know you better.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, and young adults. In addition, I have worked closely with parents to help them find better ways to communicate with their children and understand their needs. There are no silly questions when it comes to parenting, and I am really strong in bringing parents into the treatment, so you won’t feel left out.

My Unique Approach to Therapy

People describe me as an empathic person, really good at listening, and very reflective. When it comes to therapy, I am deeply interested in following your lead. I believe that creating a strong and safe relationship will help us work together to achieve your goals.

My treatment approach includes psychodynamic psychotherapy, attachment-based interventions, and mindfulness-based interventions as well. I have experience working with individuals who are experiencing depression, anxiety, difficulties with regulation, life adjustments, and parenting challenges.

Specialized & Extended Training

I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, completed a master’s degree in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, and I graduated from Wayne State University with a master’s degree in Social Work.

I recently completed a two-year psychodynamic psychotherapy specialized in adults from Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute.

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.
