Lily Buschette enjoys working with adolescents and young adults on a variety of challenges. She is passionate about making a positive impact on others. Whether this is offering guidance and support to someone who is overcoming an obstacle, or giving someone an extra push to reach their full potential, she is happy to help. As a naturally caring person, it’s important to her that people are comfortable, especially when they are being vulnerable.
Taking the First Step
Uncertainty about your future, relationships, and career may be leaving you feeling helpless, out of control, and disconnected from who you want to be. Constant focus on making the right decisions or choices leads you to second guess yourself at every turn. This can leave you feeling lost, stuck, and completely unsure of yourself.
The constant “what ifs” and all the pressure you put on your shoulders can be exhausting. It can also get tricky setting boundaries when you tend to put others needs above your own. You know something needs to change but maybe you’re not sure where to start. It really is as simple as a phone call to schedule your first visit with Lily.
Therapy is About More than Listening
As your mental health provider, Lily understands there is no “one size fits all” approach to therapy. At your first visit, she will start by listening to you — your story and your goals. Your story matters, and there is no place for judgement in the therapeutic experience.
But, providing therapy is more than just listening. It’s also about taking an interest, asking questions, and truly learning about what makes you unique. The reality is you never know what a person has gone through just by looking at them, which is an invaluable perspective.
Once the groundwork has been laid, Lily will work with you to develop healthier coping skills, communicate your needs and set boundaries effectively, all while exploring where you find peace in life.
Normalizing mental healthcare is very important to Lily. Like many of us, she’s experienced firsthand what mental health challenges can be like for individuals and their loved ones. Empathy is a large part of her motivation, because our commonalities as human beings are easy things to forget.
While each person is unique in their experiences, none of us are alone in them. Lily knows that starting the conversation about mental health can influence someone to reach out for help. In turn, it can can truly change another person’s life.
