Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Counseling helped me beat anxiety . Our treatment plan was realistic and based off of my interests and lifestyle , which made me want to make changes. I found out about Sara from a colleueage of mine that also had a great experience with counseling with her .

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 !
