About Me: Anton 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).

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 Anton Babushkin stand out is his high level of education and experience. He, 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 Anton from others in the field and allows him 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.
