About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles, California. I have worked within the mental health field since 2010 and developed my skills and expertise working with children, adolescents and couples. I have experience in family therapy, relational dynamics and parenting/custody issues. I support clients with improving their ability to cope with life stressors and understand/regulate their emotions.

My goal in therapy is to support my clients with tapping into their personal essence and resources, to live a more effective, relational and creative life. My counseling style is compassionate, warm, empathetic and behaviorally focused. I tailor my sessions based on the needs of my client(s), utilizing a collaborative and holistic approach. I am here to inspire and motivate each of my clients to live the life they desire.

I understand how personal the therapeutic process can be; thank you for considering me to support you with reaching your goals.
I look forward to working with you.

Finding a therapist who I connect with has been a challenge. I am glad that I found Maisha, she is down to earth with a claiming spirit. A session with her is like talking to a friend. I can be myself, she is patient and she sets a positive tone every session.

I have only had one session with Maisha so far but the first session went well and I would recommend her.

Manisha makes me feel comfortable and heard. I let her know the obstacles I am facing and she is helping me work through them at my own pace.

I’m very happy to have Maisha as my counselor! She is gentle but honest. She cares about every aspect, remembers names of people you talk about regularly and really you to succeed in your goals in therapy and life.

Maisha has been incredible. She listens to my feedback about what type of counseling works for me and then implements just that. She had been so helpful through a very difficult time for me. I’ve already gotten 3 of my friends to sign up for better help because it has had such an impact on me.
