About me

My goal as a therapist is to help you live a fulfilling life on your own terms. My approach is highly collaborative; I aim to create a therapeutic space in which you feel empowered to grow.

I have experience working with adults challenged by depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, relationship problems, identity issues, sex/intimacy issues, grief, and more. I am also a working artist, and I enjoy helping clients embrace the healing power of creative expression.

We will custom-craft a therapeutic approach to fit your circumstances. I am a capable practitioner of CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered Therapy, and other methods. I draw from all of these in my work, according to your personality, needs, and strengths.

Incredibly professional without being cold or clinical. Warm, friendly, approachable and, above all, supremely knowledgeable and understanding. This being my first time doing therapy, personally, I highly recommend Albert Thrower’s services. 10/10

Written on Sep 18, 2020 after therapy with Albert for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes

Albert helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. I had recently experienced two very personal losses, and on top of that was struggling with a substance abuse issue. Albert helped me understand why I was feeling the way I was and provided me healthy mechanisms to improve the way I was feeling and address the issue. He also helped me address my substance abuse problem and identify the cause of them, as well as coping mechanisms that were healthy rather than destructive. I would highly recommend him to any relative, friend, or colleague.

Albert is a counselor with great balance. He genuinely gets to know you by listening carefully and asking thoughtful questions. His professional manner and casual style create a welcoming space to be vulnerable and productive. I appreciate his light-heartedness, his empathy, and his honest support.

Albert was one of my first therapeutic contacts. Within a few weeks, he told me a couple of very useful things, that only flourished to their true meaning, as I applied them to my own life. He has a habit of gently leading you yourself to look at your own stuff, instead of pointing it out directly. The method of CBT was very convenient and gave me tools to check out my own deceptive behaviors in an ongoing process.

Albert is very accommodating, always punctual, and focused on directly supporting the concerns I've expressed. He also has made useful suggestions where suitable.

Albert is amazing. He is extremely kind, non-judgemental and caring. He has a great manner and has a great gift in listening and being able to respond in a way that is supportive. I already feel much better in myself from his counselling.
