Founder & CEO of Whole Family Healing Group

Miesha Rice is a native of Baltimore, MD.  After graduating high school, she moved to Greensboro, NC to study Mass Communication at Bennett College.  After spending some time in the media and entertainment industry, Miesha decided it was time for a change and decided to pursue a career in Social Work.  She entered the University of Maryland Graduate School of Social Work in 2011.  She decided to go this route after having to take off some time from her entertainment career to care for her mother who was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer.   There was a desire to do something to advocate for people who were not quite able to advocate for themselves, such as many of the experiences her mother had during that time.

In 2013, Miesha earned a Master of Social Work (MSW) in Clinical Mental Health from the University of Maryland Graduate School of Social Work, one of the top Social Work schools in the nation.  She was trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Substance Use, Mental Health Policy, Family Therapy, and Management and Community Organizing.  Miesha also served as the 2013 Student Commencement Speaker, where she gave a roaring speech on behalf of her graduating class.  Upon graduation, Miesha worked and volunteered in various settings with several populations including the Baltimore City Public School System, adults with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders, military veterans through the Red Cross and Roberta’s House to serve those who lost loved ones to homicide.  She has also worked with several programs within criminal justice system such as the diversion and reentry program, and grief and loss with the State’s Attorney’s Office for Baltimore City. Today, Miesha Rice serves as the first African American female to oversee program operations for the Adult Drug Treatment Court for Baltimore City’s Circuit Court.  She has even received a certification from the State of MD as a specialist to assist victims and witnesses of crime. 

Miesha Rice has been a member of the International Association of Trauma Professionals, and is a current member the National Association of Social Workers, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  Along with her full-time responsibilities and serving on the School of Social Work Alumni Board of Directors, she is helping individuals, families, and children heal through her mental health and wellness agency, Whole Family Healing Group.  She does psychotherapy and appears as a guest mental health expert on live shows and podcasts discussing the impact of mental health challenges within our urban families and communities.

In her spare time, Miesha enjoys doing things for self-care, working out and training in the gym, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and trying new restaurants.  She also loves to listen to music, motivational messages, reading, and cooking healthy meals.
