About Me

Peace and blessings beautiful beings. I have always been interested in the mental processes of individuals based on biological, psychological, social, and economical factors. This passion for psychology began with a “peanut butter and jelly sandwich” activity in college. Understanding how people think from what seemed to be a simple task was intriguing and elicited my yearning to learn more. I am passionate about mental health and self-care, providing client-centered and systems approaches. The study of my career has been providing individual, group, and family therapy with services for trauma, depression, anxiety disorders, and adjustment disorders. I have special interests in sex therapy focused on intimacy, pleasure of the self and partner(s), kink, and consensual nonmonogamy. The goals I aspire to accomplish as a therapist with my clients are to formulate and understand the impact past experiences, educate on self-preservation as it pertains to issues and concerns, encourage positive changes in behavior, provide a development for skills to use in their daily life, and provide accountability for achieving goals and consistency with their growth.

Makka Hayes is great. She was very accommodating to meeting times that worked for me. She also was quick to respond to messages left on off times. What I really appriciate was that she let me know when she thought I would get better help if I found a new therapist because she doesn't specialize in a certain area that is critical for me.

Makkah is awesome. She is very welcoming, professional and patient. At first I was nervous and hesitant about seeking help but now I’m happy I did. I am confident that she’ll help me in some way and am looking forward to it.

Makkah, really does her best to work around my schedule and including my little girls in the conversation. Which the girls love and I really appreciate. She kind and gives great insight. Being a mother is hard it’s great that we can seek help and support for our mental health. Through this app and wonderful therapist Makkah it’s been a huge blessing and life changing.

Makkah is kind, light, professional, and considerate! I am so grateful for her and how flexible and available she is with my ever-changing schedule.

She’s so cool, attentive and friendly. She’s already got me feeling like I can get what I need. First session, and I felt hopeful. I’ve been through 3 therapists and I’m finally finding one that I feel is listening to me.

Very different than other therapy I have had. Optimistic about therapy now.

I have only had a couple of sessions with Makkah but I am already comfortable with her. She makes every effort to listen intently to what I'm saying and help me in whatever way she can. I am looking forward to working with her as we delve into my issues.

Work with me!
