Dr. Makida Bey

Makida Bey, PsyD, is a leader in resilience therapy and coaching. She is the Founder and CEO of the Resilience Therapy Center, which focuses on building resilience for individuals, families and businesses. Dr. Bey's signature integrative approach combines her Harvard Medical School education in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) with her extensive experience working with high-anxiety and high-stress clients. She has been a frequent international guest speaker on topics including PTSD, anxiety, psychological domains of health, cultural racism, and self-care for individuals and communities. Some of the past organizations Dr. Bey has worked with include Booz Allen Hamilton, Rite Aid, Raytheon, Nationwide Insurance, Abbott Laboratories, and Adventist Healthcare. When not working, Dr. Bey finds joy and wonder in Sci-Fi movies, trips to the beach, and Game of Thrones episodes. Despite being an empowerment expert, she can’t stand getting behind slow people in traffic. Follow #dr.makidabey on Instagram, but don’t follow her in traffic.
