“Violence is an experience not an identity” says Imani Evans, which is the founding principle on which she started Women Healing Women, Inc. She has spent many years motivating others to creatively transform their lives. She is a dynamic speaker, who captivates her audience with passion and humor. As a professional counselor and life coach, Imani inspires her clients to turn painful experiences into purpose-driven missions.
Imani is currently pursuing a doctorate in Counseling Education & Supervision, and she holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology. She has been a social change agent for more than 24 years, working with several non-profit agencies throughout Atlanta, New Jersey and New York. Evans received Special Congressional Recognition as director of a national breast and cervical cancer awareness program (1996). She has facilitated workshops across the country for such organizations as: Newark Day Center, Miss Teen Plus Scholarship, YWCA, TEDCO Lincoln House, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, National Black Women’s Health Project, MELD Program for Girls, and Dance to a Different Drum.
Imani is both an artist and healer, combining her talents to create an amazing atmosphere for transformation and empowerment.
Evans was trained in the cognitive-behavioral approach to counseling. However with own spiritual growth, her style has become far more eclectic and holistic. Over the years, Imani has helped many individuals manifest their dreams beyond perceived limitations. Now she uses her unique combination of creativity and psychology as a vehicle for healing, and self-mastery.
