Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy (also known as ‘talk-therapy’) is a collaborative relationship between the client and therapist, with the intention of working towards specific goals to improve the client’s emotional well-being, social functioning, and create positive behaviour change.

In order for psychotherapy to be as successful as it can be, there needs to be some willingness to ‘put in the work’. This could include doing written homework and practicing skills outside of session, but mostly requires openness to change.


Our therapists primarily offer behaviour-based approaches, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT focuses on the development and expansion of psychological flexibility, which is an internal process of emotional openness and behaviour change to live more in-line with one’s personal values.

Some common reasons to seek therapy might be low or depressed mood, anxiety, emotional regulation/anger management/conflict with family members, peers, teachers or other behavioural challenges. We also offer parental/caregiver support.

We are able to service families through a variety of funding options.

We are an OAP Approved Provider. All of our ABA services are supervised by clinicians on the OAP Provider List.
Our services are considered an eligible expense to be purchased using OAP budgets, childhood budgets, interim one-time funding, and needs-based Core Clinical Services. Some of our services are also covered under Special Services at Home (SSAH) funding.

Psychotherapy is also covered by most extended health benefits. It is recommended that families call their insurance provider to confirm if they have coverage for a psychotherapist.

Please note that all of our services are subject to revision, and results are not guaranteed. We use evidence-based strategies to base all of our interventions and clinical recommendations, as outlined in the CRPO’s code of ethics, as well as the CCPA’s code of ethics and standards of practice.

If non-evidence-based interventions are requested, their effectiveness must be monitored closely. Alternatively, referrals can be made to other professionals better suited to oversee such interventions.

If psychotherapy services are not provided in accordance to these stipulations, the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) has a system for concerned individuals to file a complaint.
