Hello, my name is Makalah, and I am one of the therapists at HopeSprings. Before finishing my graduate degree, I had the opportunity to work with college students from a variety of backgrounds. I have experience working with people managing depression, anxiety, OCD and PTSD in an outpatient setting. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI).

I view the relationship between myself and my clients to be an honest, trusting, and supportive one. I value being able to meet the client where they are and being adaptable to achieve a positive outcome. I am committed to making sure my clients and their family make progress in ways that work best for them. I look forward to working with you and your family!
