Hello, my name is Ronak Makadia, and I am a licensed clinical psychologist with additional training in social work. As a second-generation, Asian American I quickly learned the stigma and shame attached to attending therapy, especially within the Asian American community. As a cis-gender woman of color, I value and will provide culturally competent services. To avoid staying stuck, I collaborate with you in developing solutions. I focus on collaborative, solutions-based counseling approach to aid you in moving forward in your life. We all get stuck sometimes and I am here to help. Therapy does not have to be a painful experience and I will be here to guide you toward improvement in a welcoming, affirmative environment.
I joined Better Help because of their movement to destigmatize therapy and make mental health care accessible for all. I will continue to support their mission and provide quality counseling. Talk to me about scheduling a first appointment if you are interested in working together.
I look forward to working with you!
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Career difficulties, Depression, Communication Problems, Multicultural Concerns, Self-Love
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy
