Anissa Keyes is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Yoga instructor, and the founder of Arubah Emotional Health Services, PA, a community mental health clinic serving over 660 individuals and families annually. With over 10 years of operation, Arubah has become a fixture in the community, expanding to four office locations, seven partner sites, and a staff of 35. Anissa earned her Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, and she's authorized by Minnesota Licensing Boards to supervise those seeking licensure as an LPC, LPCC, LICSW, and LMFT. Rooted in the principles of love and restoration, Anissa's approach emphasizes healing through relationships, asserting that everyone has the capacity to overcome life's challenges.
Besides her remarkable contribution to mental health, Anissa is also a proven entrepreneur and a wealth-building strategist. She has successfully navigated the challenges of owning and operating a small business that generates revenues of over 1 million dollars annually, a feat reached by only 4% of women-owned businesses. Her ventures expanded to commercial and residential real estate, transforming underutilized community spaces into vibrant assets. After a personal financial setback almost a decade ago, Anissa rebuilt her wealth, learned essential financial management skills, and now wishes to empower others towards financial freedom. Anissa's business model is deeply influenced by Biblical principles, emphasizing stewardship, sacrificial giving, and the sowing and reaping of benefits. She believes that with good character, spiritual grounding, and community support, there's no limit to what can be achieved.
