I actually found Dr.Banks from from a referral service provided by my employer.Ironically my employer was the cause of the stress issues. Intimidation, bigotry and constant pressure, brought me to a breaking point.After several session with Dr. Banks,she was able to work me through the issues and guided me towards a resolution. Her sessions are amazing, very calming environment for healing.
