We shared the “couple of conversations” had with folks on social media as we did our work. Quickly, a global social media family was born & we loved our village right back! Our client base also grew & grew.
Next thing ya know, we looked up & had a full-time husband & wife clinical counseling & coaching business! Keep the referrals coming. When you refer someone you love to us, we take it as a trust & handle with care.
Over time, our clients & audiences continually called us, “The Ossie & Ruby Dee of Marriage Counseling”. This is largely because of the way Naa’ila looks at Hasan as he speaks.
You should see it! The look is an emotional replica of good old fashioned iconic love.
Hasan & Naa’ila relate to couples in a special way due to our own gut-wrenching & prayerful struggles. Within 2 years after our marriage, Hasan lost his eyesight. His blindness taught us the intensity of forgiveness, trusting in God’s infinite wisdom & accepting each other as we are. The couple has made a deal. Naa’ila will be Hasan’s guided eyes on earth and Hasan agrees to spiritually guide them to a lifestyle pleasing to God. The things we teach, we practice ourselves.
God made sure we had the opportunity to test this love out!
Professionally, we have a combined total of 35 years in social work, HIV education, business management, spiritual development, prison re-entry & the mental health industry, to name a few. Naa’ila has a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling with a slew of trainings & certifications. We’ve co-authored two e-books. Hasan has an MBA & is ABD for International Business & Management. We have two teens remaining at home so our parenting journey is ongoing!
