Althea is a Registered Psychotherapist who has devoted her career to supporting teens,young adults and adults,who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem, grief, loss and burnout identify the subtle, recurring patterns in their lives that contribute to their distress.Drawing from her training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), she joins with her clients to help them better “see” how their past relational experiences and their emotions and fears inform the ways in which they engage with others and themselves and creates a safe, warm and empathetic environment where her clients can discover and embrace their strengths and vulnerabilities in a way that leaves them feeling more empowered.

“I recognize that this is a difficult time for you. You are not alone. I will sit with you while you experience big emotions, challenge you to explore the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that keep you feeling stuck, support you as you re-write these patterns and celebrate with you as you discover your resilience and the life you were meant to live.”
