Besides providing psychotherapy, Makida has previously and recently been a guest speaker on topics that benefit from her diverse background, including psychological domains of health, cultural racism, and self-care for individuals and communities. She has also lead or assisted with workshops on topics such as microaggression, racial discourse, and how and when to engage others on difficult issues.
Dr. Bey works well with all identities and abilities that encompass you. I offer a safe, supportive way to address your whole self in a culturally responsive, socially acceptable way. I have been trained in cultural competency, as well as served as a multi-cultural trainer – a role I value highly.
The needs of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community are some of the groups I work with. I also help Poly-racial and Disabled communities find their voices.
