A Note From Makeda

I love working with teens and adults. Life can be and often is so messy. My goal as a therapist is to partner with you in figuring out how to navigate and make sense of the things happening in your life.

Why I became a therapist

I became a clinician because I believe deeply that everyone deserves care and healing.  You can create a meaningful, fulfilling, and joyful life and it is a privilege to support you through that journey.

What I am Passionate About


I am passionate about social justice, liberation, and generational healing.  I work to amplify the voices of marginalized people and hold space for them.
