GET TO KNOW MALKA AND KELLY

Kelly and Malka created Empowered Voices to fill a gap they saw in working with women in their private practices.  They used their combined experience of over 35 years to put together a curriculum that helps women empower themselves and one another. In a group setting women can build each other up in a way that is uniquely powerful and compliments work done in individual psychotherapy. Malka and Kelly are excited and looking forward to helping women on this journey.
