While specializing in a wide range of modalities; CBT, DBT, Humanistic, Holistic, Trauma, Conflict Mediation, Depression, Anxiety and Stress management, and Motivational Interviewing – she thrives in partnering with clients to explore and apply innovative therapeutic methods that are personalized and holistic.

Her certifications in Executive Coaching and corporate experience allow her to uniquely blend psychotherapy with coaching methods to help clients heal, build confidence, prepare for vigorous interviews in competitive fields, succeed in Fortune companies, create healthier relationships, increase wellness competency, and essentially achieve careers and lives aligned with their vision and passions.
Imani is passionate about exploring the infinite ways in how people can step into the lives they deserve, and knows first hand the courage and strength that demands. Whether through travel, jumping out of an airplane, comedy writing or singing out of tune – Imani is committed to finding inventive ways to be healthy mind, body and spirit – while embracing the imperfectly beautiful journey.
