Being a young child of immigrant parents from the Vietnam War, Maleya knows all too well what it means to struggle in an unknown world. Faced with a multitude of adversity and humble beginnings, she has learned to find the deep meaning behind such experiences so that it does not define you, but it deepens you, so that you are best able to serve others & shine your greatest light. It is through these experiences that she was able to discover her life’s purpose. Now, she is on a mission to help others do the same as well.

Hypnotherapy has been a powerful tool in helping Maleya accomplish her life’s mission of helping other’s realize their light. She goes above and beyond to deliver what is needed with her compassionate heart and gentle nature. She conducts workshops & meditation classes in her spare time where she shares her insights on expanding awareness and raising consciousness among humanity.

Maleya currently resides in Santa Monica, CA with her husband. She enjoys living out her dream of being in LA after growing up in the Midwest. She enjoys hiking in the mountains and being in nature when not focused on her work.
