"As long as you have breath, you have options" - Imani Cohen
Progress in life is a process. To move forward, sometimes you have to look back to see how much progress you have made, but you must also look ahead to see how much more progress remains. This process doesn't come without bumps and bruises. It can produce feelings of anxiety, anger, or depression, and sometimes we may lose loved ones or damage relationships while on our journey.
No matter where you are on your journey, I am here to help you process those traumatic experiences, those sleepless nights that keep you up, and the moments that prevent you from being present.
Progress awaits you with open arms. Trust and give yourself grace along the way. Therapy can be scary. Perhaps this isn't your first time attending therapy. Or maybe, therapy is not common in your community and you never even considered it.
We all deserve the feeling of being present, inspired, and happy. I'm here to guide you along your journey to help you reach that. Together we will get to the root of your challenges to help you find clarity and embrace your authentic self.I will provide a person-centered approach that meets you where you are and allows you a space where you will have grace to process, cry, and laugh, as you come back home to yourself.
