The Benefits of Accessing our Collaborative Psychiatric Care
Psychiatry helps empowers individuals to make major changes in their life, and to pinpoint underlying issues related to their mental or behavioral health patterns.
Improving Your Quality of Life
Accessible psychiatric support for children and adults provides a timely diagnosis, medication recommendations or monitoring, and psychotherapy recommendations. Helping you initiate your journey to recovery faster.
Reduced Wait Times
Most clients wait for 6-18 months for a psychiatric consult. Because we are collaborative partners, and through our Virtual Clinic your wait is significantly reduced to 6 to 8 weeks, with the added convenience meeting via your therapist’s office or from your home.
Please let your therapist know your interest in working alongside a psychiatrist. Consultations can be booked after your second psychotherapy session. You will get a referral form to give to your family doctor.

The consultations take place with both the therapist and the psychiatrist. The doctor’s time is covered by OHIP. However since the therapist’s time is not covered by OHIP regular fees will apply. Initial assessments are 90 minutes long, follow ups are 20 minutes long.
The first consultation is 90 minutes long, after that the doctor will make recommendations for follow ups depending on your situation. Follow ups are 20 minutes long so they can take place during a regular psychotherapy session.
Why should you put your mental health first?
Mental health is important for all ages, for children and adolescents, to adults and seniors. If how we think, feel, and act is affected, our ability to cope with life may be compromised causing anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorders that may grow with time. Getting early help, creates better practices of how we handle stress, relate to others, and make sound life choices.
