Karen D. Banks (she/her), M.Ed., LPC - Supervisor
Owner and Counselor
What is your truth? My goal with our sessions is to help you walk in your truth. I work hard to treat people as a whole person, not a diagnosis or someone limited by the problems they are experiencing. We collaborate on your treatment so that you discover who you are and find ways that work for you to walk in your truth. I am passionate about mental wellness and helping individuals and communities thrive. Your therapy is custom to you and might include conversations about coping skills, your support system, personal goals, or incorporating natural health into your life.
I primarily see adults and couples for therapy using a holistic and cognitive behavioral approach. I have completed levels 1, 2, and 3 in Gottman Method Couples Therapy as well as Treating Affairs & Trauma and Couples & Addiction Recovery. I am in training toward my Sex Therapy Certification through Sexual Health Alliance. My clients want to work on reducing stress, anxiety, depression, sexual concerns, relationship and communication problems, racial/cultural concerns, and improve all facets of their lives. I also offer wellness coaching to clients around the globe to work on self-improvement, business growth, getting out of their own way, and developing a positive mindset.
In my "spare time", I enjoy nature, public speaking, education, activism, yoga, and growing Trinity Wellness to serve the community!
Ruth Banks (she/her), M.A., Ed.D.
Office Momager & Education Support Specialist
Full disclosure, I am the owner’s mother, therefore affectionately known as the ‘Office Momager’. With that being said, I serve to support not only my daughter as she strives to help others, but also be a support for the other counselors in the office and serve our clients. Please look for me to support you with accessing the office and our website.
I have over forty years in the field of education from serving as a classroom teacher (grades 1-5), reading specialist, elementary principal, coordinator of federal programs, and director of curriculum and staff development. I am currently serving as an adjunct professor continuing to train teachers. I would be happy to help you navigate the school system and be your advocate when attending school meetings. You can look to Trinity Wellness to fulfill all of your mental, physical, and emotional needs.
Brittany O'Bryant (she/her), M.A.
Counselor in Training & Case Manager
Throughout the years, I have witnessed so many clients going through daily life traumas and daily life stressors without having anyone to talk to. Whether clients are facing challenges that deal with relationships issues, self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression or even issues with academic planning I want my clients to know that there is help for their specific issues.
I am passionate about helping and providing clients with an integrative tailored approached to each individual’s needs that I provide counseling and support. I truly believe that counseling is the avenue for bringing peace, happiness, and safety to clients through various integrative approaches such as Reality Choice Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy.
I have openings to work with children of all ages.
Deanna D. Granger (she/her), M.Ed., Ph.D. Candidate
Typically, we wear a lot of hats and life “tries” to deter us from making time for self-care. However, YOU are important. So, give yourself permission to put YOU at the top of your to-do list. Self-care is not selfish, it is essential….YOU are essential. My goal is to support my clients holistically…..mentally, spiritually, socially, and physically. My patients are actively involved in their treatment plan that is tailored to their unique selves. I see clients for individual, couples, and family therapy. I specialized in working with moms and dads through their prenatal healthcare experience. I support my clients with concerns around depression, anxiety, stress, and health management. For the record, you do not need to have a specific concern in your life to see a therapist. I believe it is important to be proactive about your mental health and having periodic checks with a therapist is encouraged. “Give your friends a break and get you a therapist.”
