President & Therapist
"Love & Restoration"
Anissa is the founder and owner of Arubah. She came in the field when she was 15 years old with the desire to help. She ended up spending several years in Social Services but not
feeling like her contribution would help the clients sustain over time. She continued to desire to help guide individuals and families into a space of healing, and specifically wanted to
provide support to the people that were least likely to receive the services. Her passion inevitably became focused on merging her spiritual beliefs, her understanding of the importance of
emotional stability, and the connection with physical health and well being. Her sights were set on facilitating restoration. Her hope was that people would go beyond natural restoration,
and instead be spiritually restored to whom God had created them to be.
Anissa loves spending time with her five children, is very involved in church activities and enjoys reading. She really loves to travel and try new things. She spends a lot of time
with close family and friends. She practices Vinyasa Power Yoga, and is both a Registered Yoga Teacher (200) and a Registered Holy Yoga Instructor. She enjoys
teaching both Holy Yoga and Trauma Sensitive Yoga.
Anissa has her Bachelor of Science in Law, Criminology and Deviance and her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Minnesota. She completed her Master of Arts in Marriage and Family
Therapy from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. She has been providing Clinical Supervision for the past seven years and practicing for the past 10 years. She is approved

simply a vessel to assist in facilitating the process of healing.
