My name is Makela Mims, and I’m a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I was born and raised in San Francisco, California and I specialize in anxiety and depression in African American women, couples therapy, and blended families.
I hold degrees in both Pastoral Studies and Marriage and Family Therapy, so I am concerned with the spiritual wellbeing of my clients. I care deeply about the troubles of African American women, and how depression and anxiety can impact lives.
I’m a woman in transition, scared and unsure of my next move. I’m afraid I will fail. I’m afraid that I’m not good enough.
I’m a woman who is unfulfilled and uncertain. No one knows the heavy weight of inadequacy and fear of abandonment I carry daily. My smile is the mask I wear to to hide the pain of my insecurities. No one sees the real me.
