Karen Busch, LCSW




My name is Karen Busch and, as a therapist in Orange County, I specialize in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, as well as children and adolescents.

I have created this website in order to teach you about the services I offer here in Newport Beach and how those services might help you live a healthier life--a life characterized by freedom and peace. There are many things that can affect negative change in your life: shame, anxiety, depression, unhealthy relationships, an unstable marriage, and/or a detrimental dynamic with addiction.

These things do not have to be permanent. I would be happy to help you explore what it means to unearth the root issues behind them and understand how to live a life of freedom and positive change.

I seek to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic environment to help people heal from various levels of pain to a more whole and integrated sense of self. By helping people make meaning out of their experiences and integrating these into a new narrative, I hope they will ultimately share this with their loved ones.

My aim for each individual, couple, and family I work with is to help them find their strengths and to promote and nurture these strengths in themselves. This is to help them attain more satisfying relationships, a life with broader choices and deeper meaning.

Having over 25 plus years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families has provided me with an understanding and respect for the many layers of a person's experience. This work that has brought success to my clients is something that I respect, as I do each person I have the privilege of working with.
