Autumn Makamson

Licensed Therapist, MSW, LCSW


I use exposure and response therapy to encourage members to practice interventions that will reduce their anxiety, and help them feel comfortable with discomfort. I enjoy helping people connect with deeper aspects of their lived experience, helping them get to that 'a-ha' moment. Outside of work, I love to read, attend live theater, and travel. One fun fact about me is I love all things Shakespeare.

Get to know Autumn Makamson

I was moved by the performance of the late Robin Williams in the movie Good Will Hunting. I decided I'd like to impact someone’s life in a similar manner.

I recognize that many individuals have been impacted by this disorder, and I wanted to be that resource for them.

I have a great deal of experience with grief work and trauma-informed care. Trauma is a big part of many people’s experiences, which made me want to focus on that area.

It is an active method.

Please know that hesitancy is a normal part of therapy. I will work hard to establish trust with you and go at the pace you feel comfortable with.
