About Mesha Muwanga

I have been practicing as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) for the last 10 years. As a practitioner I have worked for the Mary K. Shell crisis hotline, Omni behavioral health, Clinica Sierra Vista, Kaiser, Mental Health Systems, Scotts Youth facility, Psychiatric Wellness Center, and Friese Hope House. I have held titles which include mental/behavioral health therapist, program coordinator, supervisor, shift coordinator, assessment coordinator, and head of service. As a provider I believe in knowledge and truth as path to achieving a mentally healthy self. I currently own my own private practice in which I practice as a Christian therapist. I enjoy helping clients gain clarity of thought and seeing life through scriptural lenses as the basis of truth.


I help clients find their freedom. I believe that there is hope in every situation and I am skilled in working with client's who have a hard time believing that they can overcome. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, communication, and relationships. As a Christian therapist I believe in a holistic approach to treatment and focus on the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of a client.


I specialize in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Techniques, Dialectical Behavior Techniques, Narrative techniques to identify problematic thoughts and language which leads to alternative moods and alternative behaviors.


I have experience in treating clients with:

  • Anxiety 
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Addictions
  • Marital issues
  • Children experiencing issues related to school, self-esteem, bullying, educational difficulties, identity, suicidal ideations, defiance, and conduct issues.  
  • The severely mentally ill experiencing psychosis, homelessness, and substance use. 

Mesha takes a special interest in providing premarital counseling and does provide services as a Christian counselor for those interested.  

Life can definitely be hard and overwhelming, but with some education and support, battles can be won and goals can be achieved. If you feel like you just need a little hope or you feel like you can't remain in the state you are in any longer, reach out and call.
