Althea Sawyers


About Me

I am a Florida Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 10 years of experience, and a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. In the past, I’ve worked in the Community Mental Health setting, but I currently work in Private Practice both in-office and via teletherapy (video). My primary models of therapy are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Trauma Incident Reduction facilitation, and Hypnotherapy, which are evidence-based. The clients I’ve worked with present with a wide range of issues that include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, couple and relationship issues, trauma-related issues, weight management, smoking cessation, goal-setting and other areas of self-empowerment.

My mission is to empower those with whom I work to no longer be crippled by anxiety and depression, or be stuck and feel unfulfilled in their couple relationship, or live in the shadows and fears experienced from past traumatic events, but to take back control of their lives and to start living a life of fulfillment, peace, and balance. I enjoy helping people discover and establish their strengths, and equipping them with the tools they need to become better problem solvers.

It’s not easy to decide on which therapist may be best for you, I understand that, but I’m hoping you will take a leap of faith and give me a call. I’m looking forward to meeting you and to help you accomplish your goals!

Althea helped me work through my issues with personalized care and always made me feel like I was in a comfortable and safe space.

My sessions with Althea have been amazing! She has taken the time to listen and understand the issues I am dealing with in my life and relationship. Her insight has provided me great clarity and hope for the future. She has challenged me in ways to open my mind and better my communication skills which have had an immediate positive impact on my life as a whole. I am a better person entirely after only two sessions with her! This has been life-changing and the best investment in myself that I have ever made. I was on the fence about counseling because it was never something of the norm within my circle of life, but I am glad I stepped outside the box and took the initiative to seek help. Coming across Better Help has been a life-saver and since I have signed up I have already convinced my partner to sign up as well. She is going through sessions that are helping her with her issues and I have already referred Better Help to some close friends and family as well. I recommended Better Help to anyone and I would definitely recommend Althea to anyone as well! Thank you so much for everything!

Althea’s sensitivity and acuity are unmatched. She is able to precisely identify what my pains and struggles are. She is all around amazing.
