Our master’s level student therapists are selected via a rigorous selection process and all clinical work is supervised by an experienced Registered Psychologist to ensure the highest quality of support for clients. The supervisor will work closely with the student therapist to oversee best evidence-based practices and care for both the client and student.
Each session will be video recorded and sent to the supervisor for review. There will be additional consent to ensure each client is comfortable with their session being recorded for training purposes.
Our student therapists can support perinatal and general populations. Each client will complete two free initial screening processes to ensure goodness of fit. The first brief phone screening is with administrative staff at the time of booking and the second screening process is at the free intake session with the student therapist, to ensure the presenting concerns are within the scope of what the student can support. The screening processes will also ensure the clients’ therapeutic needs match the modalities offered by the student. There will be referral options available if the client and student are not a fit.
The cost to see a student is reduced to $50 per 50-minute session. The initial intake is free of charge to ensure goodness of fit. Sliding scale options are available upon request.
Active eating disorders, active addictions, active trauma, active suicidality, childhood trauma, sexual abuse, psychosis, concerns potentially involving legal proceedings (i.e., high conflict divorce or motor vehicle accidents), formal assessments, EMDR/ART treatment & children under 10.
Yes! Each student will have completed most of the required coursework in their master’s program and will be using evidence based therapeutic modalities such as CBT, ACT, or Narrative Therapy. Students will be closely overseen by their supervisor (a Registered Psychologist). Many people find they get excellent care by having two practitioners supporting their goals. If any questions or concerns arise about a student, clients are welcome to discuss them with the student’s supervisor at any time.
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, or if you have additional concerns, our students can support you.
