Hello! My name is Kevin Wilbanks, D. Min, MA, NCC, LPC. "Kevin" is fine! Thank you for reaching out to me! I am here to collaborate with couples to get from where you are to where you want to be in your relationship and life . We do this in a confidential collaboration here on this platform. I facilitate client collaboration towards change in an environment of listening and understanding, non-judgmental consideration, dependability, and honesty. Our relationship in our work together is the most important thing, so you can grow as a couple to be more of who you want to be and like who you are in your relationship. Therapy helps you resolve past interpersonal problems and overcomes barriers to growth by offering a “corrective emotional experience” through your relationship with me, as your therapist. An example is, finally feeling heard and understood by someone! You can develop skills and directly apply them to your relationship!
It takes courage to reach out. Not only that, it is smart to do so. Part of growing in our competence in life is knowing our strengths and our limitations. Outsourcing is a good idea, especially if you have used your skills and resources and have not been able to change an aspect of your life. Everyone outsources. We do so when we hire someone to do any service on our house or car. We outsource when we have an athletic coach. I am an expert you can also outsource to, for more personal areas of life improvement.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I help clients capture a greater sense of wellbeing and control over their lives by teaching them new approaches to solving old problems. They may experience a sense of wellbeing and control they have never experienced before!
My clients often come to me for counseling when they are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief & loss, out of control anger, dissolution of a marriage or marital conflict, parenting challenges, life changes, and other life pain or challenges.
To make life barriers become opportunities for growth, control and wellbeing, I help clients overcome these experiences by teaching them how to calm body and mind to aid them in decision making. I help clients gain awareness and insight into how the past is related to the present and help them to make different choices for their future. I help clients get unstuck from their failure in relationships or reaching other life goals by helping them change self-sabotaging beliefs, self-talk, and fears to more reality-based thoughts that have a powerful and positive impact on how they feel emotionally. I coach clients on adapting their behavioral skills to meet life challenges more effectively.

Very understanding and honest he will not beat around the bush with you he will tell you straight to help you and your partner reach your goals.
I really appreciate the time and effort gone into counseling me. Thanks. You have been professional, patient, and great in the advice you gave. I am confident of your counseling and on it helping me.
We have just started out with Dr Kevin and immediately l got the sense that he is not parting any blame or coming across as judgmental, which has allowed us to open up slowly.
Kevin has been very helpful. He is knowledgeable and provides me with activities and homework to complete that help me to learn to think differently. Counseling is hard but he is understanding and makes it less difficult.
Dr. Wilbanks is great anyone would be lucky to have him.
