Dr. Michael M. Maka is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at 360º Wellness & Coaching with experience in working with adolescents and adults across various clinical settings.

Dr. Maka has specialized training and experience in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Within the therapeutic relationship, Dr. Maka holds an emphasis on exploring past experiences, conscious and unconscious defenses, and relational dynamics that become present during the therapeutic hour. Dr. Maka believes that by focusing on these areas it leads to a deeper understanding and awareness of one’s own thoughts and feelings, along with resolving the influence of troubling past experiences in the present.
