I see Sara for the medical marijuana assisted trauma treatment and it has been exceptional. The combination of the medical marijuana with her therapy has helped me more than anything else I tried.

Counseling changed my life in such a positive way. I've been seeing Sara for the past month and my depression has already gotten better. I like being able to message her outside of session and how fast she responds. I appreciate how different of a style she has compared to other therapists and places I've been to... she is so supportive, caring, professional and funny at the right times. Now that my depression is improving, I noticed that my business and relationship with my fiance are too !

I think Sara Makin has helped me a lot since I've been seeing her. She always takes the time to reach out to me . Has a lot of techniques for dealing with stress and anxiety or depression and has shared a lot of helpful advice so far. She doesn't feel like a doctor or too professional but more personal and easy going. Video counseling has been very positive with her too... I would recommend her.

I came to Sara for couples therapy but ended up seeing her long term for individual therapy. Finding a good therapist is hard and I had never found one I really felt comfortable around before her. Sara was happy to work with me to find a style that was effective. When I needed support that's what I got. When I needed to be pushed, she was there for that too. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking to improve their life and happiness overall.

I've been seeing Sara for a few months and the progress i've been able to make is practically a miracle. I used to be so anxious that I would call off work and had low productivity. I was close to getting fired when a friend told me about Makin Wellness . I started anxiety treatment and I've been able to manage my stress and not get so worked up anymore. I'm feeling a thousand times better and just wish that I didn't wait so long to get help!

Sara is by far the best therapist I’ve ever gone to ! She is so caring , attentive and helpful. Before I saw Sara, is was extremely depressed and was drinking excessively . After starting my sessions with her , I started to become less sad, more happy and eventually became sober . Seeing her was the best thing that’s ever happened to me and my family and I cannot thank her & Makin Wellness enough !
