A SEASONED COUNSELOR
Maisha began lay counseling Teen girls and peers in her church as a young adult. Through a series of life changing experiences in her own life she felt a call to the ministry of Marriage and Family Therapy in 2005. Since then she has counseled in Non-Profit Community Counseling agencies in La Habra and Santa Fe Springs. Maisha asserts that establishing a relationship, safety, trust, and the absence of judgment are the seeds from which growth and healing emerge. She believes that she is called to plant those seeds.
