Meet The Team

Shelleka Matthews

Associate Clinical Psychologist

Shelleka Matthews is a Registered Associate Clinical Psychologist here at Tea House Therapy.

A graduate of the University of the West Indies, she completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a minor in Social Policy and a Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology. Shelleka is also Level II Trained in Gottman Couples Method.

She has been working in the field of psychology for close to a decade and has a passion for helping clients meet their self-determined goals. Shelleka believes that the process of therapy is dynamic and clients are best served by creating a safe environment where they feel comfortable to challenge themselves in order to meet their goals.

Shelleka primarily works with adults and couples on a broad range of issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, trauma, premarital counseling, interpersonal dynamics, conflict resolution, enhancing communication skills, and overall personal development (e.g. assertiveness training, setting boundaries, developing self-esteem, coping skills development, and behaviour modification).

Jehan White

Associate Clinical Psychologist

Jehan is a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Licensed Associate Clinical Psychologist at Tea House Therapy.

Her intention within therapy is to collaboratively meet clients where they are at and to share their stories.

Often we lose our voice feeling unseen and unheard by others and ourselves. Therefore, she is constantly seeking the opportunity to remain attuned and share compassion for those who are seeking connection and healing.

After completing her Masters Degree from Trinity Western University in Canada, she has been practicing Psychotherapy for over eight years.

Jehan primarily works with teenagers, families and adults on a broad range of issues including (but not limited to) trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, fertility, grief, suicidality, emotional regulation and addictions.

She invites you to come and share your journey in a non-judgmental space and work together with her to develop your voice and seek deeper relationships within your life.

Zonya Rodney

Associate Clinical Psychologist (S)

Zonya is an Associate Clinical Psychologist (S) and Mindfulness Coach and has a passion for helping people navigate the stress, challenges and complexities of being human.

Instead of seeing psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety as evidence that someone is broken or in need of fixing, she views them as pretty wise messengers telling us that something in our lives needs to be acknowledged and attended to with curiosity, calmness, courage and compassion.

No matter our age, education level or status in life, we all need to talk to someone outside of family, friends or church at times. And because she’s benefited tremendously from speaking to wise, skilled therapists when she’s felt out of sorts & uncertain & not quite her usual self, it is now her absolute joy to be able to provide a non-judgemental listening ear and to help you understand and manage your thoughts and emotions much more skill-fully, so that you can become far more relaxed, contented and at ease with yourself, your relationships and with life in general.

Zonya looks forward to helping you use the present crisis or challenge in your life as an opportunity to connect the dots in your past and create a pathway of new possibilities for your future.

Tara Armour

Associate Clinical Psychologist (S)

Tara is an Associate Clinical Psychologist (S) here at Tea House Therapy and also works with not-for-profit organisations to provide mental health support in communities in need. She has studied and trained all over the world and therefore has a culturally sensitive approach to individual treatment.

Tara recognises that every person has unique experiences which can cause distress but also build resiliency and strength. She believes that mental health is just as important as our physical health and wants to help you better understand yourself and your strengths to use the tools you already have within you to cope with the stressors of life.

Shanna Miller

Associate Clinical Psychologist (S)

Shanna is a licensed Associate Clinical Psychologist (S) with an affinity for helping individuals recognise and address imminent and present psychological distress.

The unpredictable nature of life is associated with adversities of varying types- emotional, psychological, and behavioural. She assists clients to view those, sometimes tenacious, adversities as game-changing and table-turning tools that allow them to navigate and function in more desirable ways in the face of life challenges.

It is her belief that one cannot begin to expose their pain trauma or distress until they feel comfortable to do so. As such she provides a non-judgmental atmosphere where her clients’ thoughts and emotions are acknowledged, thereby encouraging candour.

She values the concepts of individuality and agency: each person is unique and help-seeking and has the right and capacity to determine the outcome they want in their lives. Accordingly, while two individuals may experience similar challenges, every intervention is personalised and developed in collaboration with the client.

The path we choose may not always lead us to the place we want but it may lead us to the placewe need. Come see us at Tea House Therapy!
