About me

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!

Dr. M is great ! She tells me exactly what I need to hear and how to help myself ! I appreciate her honestly and how we work together to fix my negative thought patterns. She’s also always on time, easy to get ahold of and very supportive/ knowledgeable.
