My name is Mary Busby and I'm a Christ-centered counselor in St. Petersburg, FL. I specialize in treating females (from age 10 to 30's) experiencing problems such as anxiety, depression, trauma-related disorders, and difficulties of life transitions.
I use an approach called Cognitive Behavior Therapy, along with elements of Gestalt Therapy and Mindfulness. But the most important aspect of what I offer to clients is counseling from a foundation in biblical principles of Christ-centered living and Christ-centered change.
I received a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University in 2016 after spending a year working with Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa counseling homeless and at-risk females and families. There, I specifically worked with individuals overcoming addictions and co-occurring disorders. After graduating, I spent time working with a local community agency, Directions for Living, counseling at-risk children and families through a variety of issues (behavioral disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma-related disorders, etc.).
