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 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!
