Hello, and thank you for taking a few minutes to learn more about me and my therapeutic approach to counseling. My name is Karen and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in the state of Georgia. I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years and as a therapist for the past five. During this time I treated adults, adolescents, and children both in individual and small group settings on a variety of issues such anxiety, depression, stress management, anger management, grief and loss, and coping with life changes. I understand how challenging life can be and that sometimes it feels as though you are alone with no one to talk to or share your problems with. Talking about those problems is very cathartic and often times people find that just opening-up and talking about it makes them feel so much better!
As a therapist, I put a lot of emphasis on establishing a trusting and comfortable connection with my clients. I understand that it can be difficult for some people to open-up and share their personal thoughts and struggles with other people. That is why my therapeutic approach is warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental as we begin processing your thoughts and feelings and identifying root causes of your problems. We will work together to establish therapeutic goals that you would like to accomplish during the counseling process.
If you are tired of living your life feeling anxious, unhappy, and unfulfilled, let’s talk. Even if your friends and family are tired of listening to you and you just need someone to vent to about an issue, that is okay too. I will meet me you wherever you are emotionally and we will start from there! Don’t let fear or uncertainty stop you from living the happy and fulfilled life that you deserve!
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, ADHD

I am so grateful for matching with Karen Bryans. I was extremely nervous at first to try therapy, and she made me feel very comfortable from my first interaction. She is so caring, empathetic, and supportive. It is very difficult for me to open up to people, but I felt like I could trust her, and I felt comfortable enough to be vulnerable. I was able to meet all of my therapy goals with her very quickly. She was always super responsive to any questions or concerns, and I could not have asked for a better experience. If you need someone who will help you become the best version of yourself, please reach out to her. She is always there to listen and will provide you with the necessary coping skills you may need to live a more fulfilled life. I am so grateful for the time I had with her, and I believe you would be as well. She is the best, and I cannot thank her enough for everything. Please reach out to her if you want someone who will give you the support you need to live the happy life you deserve!
