At Althea Therapy, we follow a culture-first approach where we enable people across Canada to find a therapist or wellness professional, like you, who understands their unique cultural identity.
by Althea Therapy
As a member of our community of professionals, it’s important that we are aligned in what it means to practice cultural humility and provide culturally responsive care.
We define culturally responsive therapy as responding to and creating space for the client’s cultural context, which shapes their distress and overall life experiences.
We must make room for affirming cross-cultural interactions in the therapeutic process and respecting the dignity and agency of the client in all their intersections.
We want to cultivate critical conversations that create an intentional space to build shared language and practices.
