I’m so grateful you decided to stop by. I know the decision to begin therapy isn’t always easy, but that’s exactly why I’m here.
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 have dedicated my life to supporting women and families that face the special challenges of anxiety, depression, and merging two families together. As a biological mother of two, and a proud stepmother of two more, I understand the difficulties of trying merging two families. I love music, movies, reading, and working out. But more than anything else, I love helping women with families find their way out of isolation, guilt, and stress.
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. Often times, Black women feel like their voices go unheard creating feelings of anxiety, unworthiness, or depression. Sometimes resulting in being labeled as the “angry black woman.”
At Still Waters Therapy, I consider it my mission to give African American women a safe space to discover and use their inner voice. I help women, married women and stepmothers who are battling anxiety and depression take back the peace within their lives.
Through personalized support, family therapy, and uniquely personalized problem solving, my clients and I work side-by-side to create better lives.
