Kathi-Ann Busha

LCMHC

About Me

I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in the state of Utah. I have experience working with children, teens, and families. Some of the concerns that I have worked with clients on in therapy include family conflict, transitioning to adulthood, long-term depression, persistent anxiety, stress, abuse, and trauma. I am an EMDR-trained therapist who has worked with clients who have experienced sexual abuse and sexual trauma. I have experience working with clients with ADHD, on the autism spectrum, and who would consider themselves "quirky".

My counseling style is open and based around conversation. I help my clients to conceptualize their concerns and problems in a different light, changing the meaning of the stories they tell without changing the facts. I also help clients to develop different skills that can help to manage symptoms of distress in everyday life, such as mindfulness and meditation techniques and thought-changing skills. My counseling style combines EMDR and Narrative therapy techniques with DBT, CBT, and mindfulness skills for a whole-body wellness approach.

I understand how difficult it can be to seek therapy and to find a therapist that whom you connect with. I applaud those who take the first step toward facing their issues and fears and hope that I am able to work with you to live your best life.

Kathi-Ann gives a great outside perspective to internal problems. She has helped me understand triggers for my anxiety and depression. Also she has provided ways I can expect and understand those triggers before such anxiety episodes can get worse. Above all, she is a great listener and supporter in my life.

Kathi-Ann is a godsend and a great person. She is so thoughtful and responsive to my concerns and makes me feel seen and heard without judgement. I am so happy that I was assigned to her after the first attempt at finding a therapist on here which did not go well. If you have a hard time with a therapist, keep looking, I’m sure glad that I did!
