How to Find a Therapist In Toronto
Make the process simpler
When you’re in crisis or trying to manage ongoing concerns, finding a therapist can be the last thing you want to do. The process can feel overwhelming. You need to sort through profiles, consider locations, and practically guess at who will be the right match for your situation. But there’s an easier way.
Use Our Psychotherapy Referral Service
Let us help you get the help you need
For more than 20 years, PRS Toronto has been connecting clients with the right therapist for them. Many doctors send their patients to us to be connected to a Toronto therapist because they know we are an exceptional resource in the community.
All of the therapists in PRS Toronto have graduated from the Centre for Training in Psychotherapy, where they have received a recognized and rigorous education. We regularly invite new CTP graduates to join us, which means that we are always widening the specialties and experiences of the Toronto therapists with whom you can be matched.
Choose a Therapist Yourself
Take a look through our network and see who is available
You might prefer to find your own therapist. Many people are more comfortable with looking through the various provider profiles that we maintain and finding the person who seems most appropriate for their needs. This strategy can feel safer because you can browse in privacy and not share information with additional therapists (although PRS Toronto maintains the highest standards of client confidentiality).
Our therapists maintain profiles that cover their specialties, backgrounds, and specific therapeutic methods. Different therapists often use different approaches to similar problems. Browsing through backgrounds and taking your time can help you find someone whose approach resonates with your own way of approaching difficult times. That can help you find a better “fit” with a therapist.
Once you find a therapist who feels like a good match for your needs, you can reach out to them directly for an appointment.
PRS Toronto maintains a wide network of therapists who provide high-quality psychotherapy services throughout the city. We understand that there are different reasons that someone might seek the services of a therapist, and we want to help clients find the right therapist for their specific situation.

Is Psychotherapy Referral Service Covered by OHIP?
Although our services, modest by industry standards, are not covered by OHIP, the Canada Revenue Agency does recognize the cost of non-reimbursed services provided by Registered Psychotherapists as a medical expense eligible for a tax credit.
