Partnering with the Psychotherapy Matters Virtual Clinic, we can access a Psychiatrist together through teleconference sessions for assessments, medication evaluations and follow up appointments if needed. This provides faster access to psychiatric services and better care coordination. The fees for the Psychiatrist are covered through OHIP.

We offer a donation program wherein the client receives 10 consecutive sessions for a cost of their choosing (between $25 and $50). Generally these are offered in a weekly format. We offer this for those who find themselves with significant financial barriers but require assistance. The counsellors do this work for free and the funds are donated to a non-profit agency.
Sliding Scale: Despite charging $120 as our base fee, we will reduce the fee based on financial need. There is no time-limit as there is with the Donation Program.
