Malaika Ward was a great therapist and I enjoyed her spiritual approach towards therapy. It wasn’t complete science but a more personal approach. She is a great therapist and I will use the things she taught me the rest of my life and pass it on to my sister and possible future descendants. ❤️

Hearing “you’re doing a good job” means so much in a world that expects so much from me. This was the perfect match and I feel comfortable telling her how I feel.
