A group psychotherapy practice offering anxiety treatment in Toronto
We are a group of professional psychotherapists who work together to provide anxiety treatment and other psychotherapy treatments for our clients. We have training and experience that enables us to work with an in-depth understanding of the mind and individual development. We strive to get to know our clients as individuals and to form an individualized plan to treat their anxiety, and any other symptoms by addressing root causes.
We work together in the course of our intake process and throughout treatment in order to provide effective and individualized treatment.
Anxiety is a common experience that includes general experiences of worry and difficulty tolerating uncertainty, anxiety in social situations, panic, and obsessions and compulsions. Learn more about anxiety and its treatment.
Anxiety treatment Toronto: fees and coverage
Anxiety treatment by non-physician psychotherapists is not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP), so patients pay out-of-pocket. Clients may be eligible for reimbursement of some psychotherapy fees from extended health plans, but should check ahead of time see whether their plan will cover our services.
Our fees for therapy are within the range of psychotherapy services in the GTA. We reserve some reduced fee/sliding scale places for clients who would currently struggle to pay the regular fee.
Options for anxiety treatment in Toronto
Seeking anxiety treatment through a private psychotherapy practice such as ours can have certain advantages over other alternatives, such as attending a hospital outpatient psychiatry program. Although clients must pay for treatment at a private practice, they will generally face less of a wait time. There may also be more treatment options available through a private practice than through a hospital, including longer-term therapy which can enable clients to explore the underlying causes of their difficulties.
Referrals for anxiety treatment in Toronto
We aim to minimize the wait for new Toronto clients seeking anxiety treatment. Self-referring clients will be contacted by phone by one of our psychotherapists as soon as possible after contacting us to discuss treatment options. Our goal is to arrange an initial in-person meeting within 1-2 weeks.
We also liaise with general practitioners and psychiatrists in the Greater Toronto Area, and are currently accepting referrals. We provide individualized short- and long-term psychotherapy that is grounded in ongoing research in the psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural traditions.
It is important to us to work collaboratively with physicians in order to best meet the needs of patients, and we commonly see patients taking psychotropic medications.
