About

Why struggle through life's challenges alone? Why not seek help today. I believe that each individual client has within themselves the power to change, live their ideal intended life, and maintain satisfying relationships. The counseling experience should provide an environment that is supportive, nonjudgemental, safe, and encouraging. Over my 15+ years of experience I have been known to challenge my clients to confront their issues, and develop the inner fortitude to deal with life's many challenges.
If you're dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one, trauma, battling depression, anxiety, or stress, I can help. I have a passion for helping men find the emotional support/outlet to deal with their historical traumas, anger, abuse and other concerns. I also specialize in helping other helpers and have been described as the therapist's therapist.
The easiest and fastest way to secure an appointment is to submit a contact form on our website www.imaracounseling.com/contact. You can read about our therapists by visiting www.imaracounseling.com/staff. Feel free to call but our admin staff is working from home, so please leave a message. We try our best to return all calls within 36 hours.
