Maneka is focused. She listens with care and repeats what you say in her own words to let you know she is getting it. She raises questions that challenge you to think. She reaches on a mental as well as spiritual level of understanding that helps me to understand myself on a deeper scale. I highly recommend this woman. In only a few sessions I am getting to the core of some of my most pressing mental health issues. This time with love and understanding.
