Makisha is by far the best therapist I have ever had. I could not be happier with her professionalism, knowledge, and compassion dealing with the things that I bring her. She is extremely skilled and I would happily recommend her to anyone, especially to other marginalized people (BIPOC, queer, trans, etc.). I can tell her anything and know that she is not only listening, but formulating concrete ways to work through my problems.

Makisha listens to my concerns and makes me feel validated. She remembers small details about me like my birthday and the little things I mention in my sessions. She makes me feel heard and understood. I highly recommend her to all friends and colleagues.

Work with me!
