How long does therapy typically last?

Therapy can be as long or short as you desire.

Scheduling is based on your needs, resources, therapist's and client's schedule and what stage of change you are in.

Prebooking a few weekly or bi-weekly sessions in the beginning is ideal for consistent support and accountability. Then usually sessions can be spread further apart.

Do I need a diagnosis or referral from a medical doctor?

No. You can refer yourself if you feel you are struggling in some way, having trouble coping or simply desire support to make improvements in your life at home or at work.

Is therapy covered by insurance?

Private practice therapy is not covered by OHIP but is covered under many group insurance plans. Check your benefits for coverage for Registered Psychotherapists and ask us about direct billing- available for some but not all plans.
