Great guidance for Family.
Dr. Busse is a professionally competent therapist who is also personally engaging and responsive. He can address a vast variety of age, cultural and behavioral problems with skill and sensitivity. My family has all benefited from his creative and consistent modeling and guidance. We have recommended him to friends who have agreed with assessment. Do yourself a favor and give him a call. You’ll feel better.
Consistent guidance and great staff.
As a current patient, I concur wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer in re Dr. Busse’s immense amount of skill and sensitivity. I’d add that he’s one of the most brilliant, yet most humble, people -- let alone doctors -- whom I’ve ever met. He has consistently demonstrated the flexibility to tailor his therapy to an individual’s specific needs with perfectly graceful competence and aplomb. I’ll comment on each of the above criteria: *Staff*: Dr. Busse’s assistant, Esky, is sweet and friendly, welcoming, and a very efficient, intelligent aide. *Punctuality*: I’m the one with the punctuality problem...yet Dr. Busse is always ready and waiting to see me, and never with judgment. *Helpfulness*: Times a million. Let’s just say I might be dead without his wisdom. *Knowledge*: Beautifully brilliant mind, and this applies not just to his craft, but beyond. I’ve run out of characters, but I absolutely, unequivocally recommend Dr. Busse as the premier practitioner in the DC area.
Competent and Thoughtful Therapist
Dr. Busse is a very thorough and interested therapist. He spends extra time learning about the concerns you bring and will always be professional in his dealings and assessments. He is insightful and extremely intelligent with his approach. You always feel in control and listened to. He is one of the most well-rounded and capable therapists in the area. It would be worth a try to give him a call. I recommend him fully.
Patient, empathetic, and effective.
I found Dr. Busse at a very complicated place in my life. I had just returned from my second tour overseas and couldn’t figure out how I fit into civilian life. Everything just felt wrong. Dr. Busse was patient, empathetic, and – most importantly – effective. Dr. Busse helped me find new direction in my life. I would recommend him to anyone struggling.
Professional and ethical therapist.
Dr. Busse is a very professional and ethical therapist. He is personable and attentive while still being profoundly insightful. This was the easiest and most satisfying counseling experience I’ve had. He is careful with emotional and family boundaries but can dig you out of a stuck spot with genuine sincerity. He has been a big help to me. I would go back again should the need arise.
