How Psychotherapy Can Help

An important part of our approach to therapy is that we treat people, not disorders. That said, there are some common symptoms that lead people to seek out therapy, from everyday stressors to psychiatric conditions.

Everyday Stressors and Challenges

Psychotherapy is incredibly effective for understanding, coping with, and overcoming everyday challenges and stresses, including, but not limited to:

Medical & Psychiatric Conditions

Therapy is also highly effective for individuals suffering from psychiatric diagnoses (often in combination with drug therapy as prescribed by a physician, or an alternative approach by a holistic practitioner) and some medical conditions, including those listed below. It can help individuals understand their diagnosis, learn how to manage their symptoms and how to avoid triggers that cause acute episodes.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m new to therapy – how can I make sure I get the most out of it?

First of all, congratulations for taking the first, hardest, and most important step:seeking help. Aside from committing to the process, the most important factor in your success will be the right therapeutic relationship – which means you feel safe and develop trust with your care provider. And our client care manager will take all the guess-work out of that process by matching you up with the right practitioner. Click here to schedule an intake call and begin that process.

 

I’m not sure whether I need psychotherapy, psychiatry or something else – can you help me figure this out?

Yes. If we are not clear on your diagnosis, have questions, feel medication may be helpful – or if you request it – we can bring in a psychiatrist for a joint consultation and, if necessary, ongoing consultation/treatment. 

 

How will I know therapy is working?

We believe strongly in measurement-based care which is why all clients have the option of completing regular (bi-weekly) inventory assessment scales, which are quick, survey-style questions designed to gauge your symptoms and state of mind. Otherwise, you can expect to feel a greater ability to manage painful emotions, more internal coping resources, an increase in positive emotions, improved interpersonal interactions, and increased self-confidence.

 

Will I have a say in my treatment plan?

Yes, every step of the way. For us, therapy is about ‘working with’ not ‘doing to’. We take a collaborative approach to your care, which means that your preferences, ideas, and choices matter and nothing happens without your consent and comfort.

 

Are your therapists trauma-informed?

Yes, all our therapists are trauma-informed, which means they understand trauma and its role as a root cause of a wide variety of issues and illnesses – both mental and physical. If necessary, you will be assigned/referred to a therapist trained in therapy focused therapy.

 

Is therapy covered by OHIP?

Unfortunately it is not. It is, however, covered by most private insurance plans.

 

What are your rates? Do you offer a sliding scale?

Our rates are in line with industry standards and we do offer subsidized sessions with our therapy interns, who are closely supervised by our therapy team. If you’re on a tight budget and/or regular fees would be prohibitive for you, please reach out for more information about this option.

 

Do you offer couples/family therapy?

We do – you can read more about that here.
