About Imara Counseling Services

ICSThe word "Imara" is a Swahili word meaning, "firm, strong, resolute."  Imara Counseling Services  is an independent counseling practice that provides person-centered therapeutic services for a wide variety of mental, behavioral, and psycho-social concerns.

Psychotherapy is a challenging, rewarding, and profound process of change and self-discovery. ICS offers clients a respectful, warm, and curious place to explore their feelings, consider the dynamics of the past, and work toward living a more wholistic life that is not saddled with the challenges of negative patterns and painful emotions.

ICS works with adolescents, adult individuals and couples providing marital, family counseling and pre-marital education.  ICS also provides a 6 session DUI/DWI mitigation program, and an 8 session Anger Management program to satisfy court-ordered intervention, and pre-trial interventions.  

Past clients  have found their therapist to be direct, warm, and nonjudgmental. ICS prioritizes helping clients feel heard and validated for who they are, and the choices (good or bad) that they have made.  ICS relies on a variety of approaches to therapy, including relational, cognitive-behavioral, and person-centered modalities. ICS' specialties include trauma, relationship and intimacy challenges, mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, grief recovery, adjustment issues, addictions (drug, alcohol, pornography, gambling), as well as life transitions at all stages.
