Professional statement

Dr. Bianca Busch enjoys working with persons who are interested in exploring their past, planning for the future, or who are motivated for change but not quite sure where to start. They may be finding themselves down and unmotivated or worried and stuck. Dr. Busch has accompanied patients on their journey exploring cultural, sexual, and gender identity. She has worked with patients as they have navigated complicated work/family dynamics. Dr. Busch has helped her patients get better sleep, improve their relationships with themselves and others, and lead more peaceful lives.

Each person presents with a unique need. Dr. Busch completes a thorough medical, social, and psychological history to co-create individualized treatment plans for her patients. A plan may include recommendations for lifestyle changes, psychotherapy, and or medication. She offers a number of psychotherapies. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can be helpful for those exploring the impact of the past on the present. She is trained in a number of cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT) which have strong evidence for the treatment of anxiety, OCD, depression, insomnia, and many other conditions. Dr. Busch is medically trained which allows her to account for the body as a whole. She uses evidence and her clinical experience to consider medical conditions which impact mental health and to prescribe medications when indicated. Altogether, Dr. Busch is prepared to provide holistic care for her patients.

Dr. Busch developed a passion for understanding culture and the lived experience long before attending medical school. Her undergraduate training in anthropology and sociology taught her the value of listening, observing, asking questions, and being prepared for the unexpected answers. Beyond theory, she has experience working with adults, children, and families in public health and medicine. Previous work in advocacy and policy allows her to identify the way in which large systems that impact the individual. Dr. Busch is currently engaged in training as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist which gives her the tools to understand developmental trajectories.
