Kathi-Ann Busha

(CMHC)

About Me

I am a Clinical Mental Health Counselor licensed in the state of Utah. I am an EMDR trained therapist who has worked with clients who have experienced sexual abuse and sexual trauma. As a Clinical Mental Health therapist, I have spent my career working with children and teens. I understand how difficult it can be to struggle with mental health when you are in middle and high school. I have worked with teens who have been struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-worth, trauma and abuse, conflicts with parents and family, and transitioning to adulthood. I hope that I will be able to guide you in developing the skills needed to navigate the transition from teen to adult, break negative generational patterns, and live your best life.

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, CNT, and mindfulness skills for a whole-body wellness approach.

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

Kathy has been working with me for only a couple weeks now and i’ve already seen and experienced change and progress. I feel completely understood and valued. I couldn’t have been matched with a better therapist.
