Meet Our People

Founded by Sara Makin in 2017, Makin Wellness prides itself on providing top quality care for patients who are ready for a change. At our Pittsburgh location, your counselors will work together with you to formulate a plan targeted for your specific goals. We see each client as an individual and each treatment must be fitted to that individual. Our goal is for you to leave our offices feeling happy and healthy.

Makin Wellness counselors are ready to assist you with issues such as depression and anxiety, stress management, anger management, grief & trauma, nutrition, and any other mental wellness needs you may have. We are also available for mental health and court ordered assessments, as well as associated testimonies. With countless successes, the members of the Makin Wellness family are ready to meet you.
