Yes, Psychotherapy Collective offers online therapy sessions for teenagers/youth. To find a therapist for teenagers view our youth therapy page.
A common question we hear from parents is ‘can therapy help a depressed teenager’? Therapy can be beneficial to anyone experiencing depression. As we have all experienced, the transition of adolescence creates uncertainty, pressure, and several new challenges. Therapy can help a depressed teenager draw upon their strengths to build resilience as they face challenges.
We hope to very soon. Unfortunately, due to the current regulatory landscape we are only offering online therapy sessions in Ontario at this time. Our goal is to be operating from coast to coast in Canada as soon as possible.
Yes, Psychotherapy Collective offers online psychotherapy sessions from Registered Psychotherapists across the province of Ontario. We offer individual therapy, couple therapy, child therapy (see the Child & Family therapy page), and family therapy.
Psychotherapy is talk-based therapy between a client and a regulated mental health professional. In Ontario, there are four designations of mental health professionals that can provide psychotherapy sessions. They include Registered Psychotherapists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists and Social Workers. Psychotherapy is currently regulated in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and the rules and regulations will vary by province. Psychotherapy can be offered in individual therapy sessions, couple therapy sessions, family therapy sessions, and group therapy sessions.

A Registered Psychotherapist refers to an individual who has been specifically trained to provide psychotherapy and are licensed and regulated by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). To learn more about psychotherapists and what Registered Psychotherapists do click here.
Child therapy refers to therapy sessions between a therapist and a child. If you are looking for a child assessment or diagnosis you should seek out a psychologist or a psychiatrist. For more information you can view the differences between psychotherapist vs psychologist here. At Psychotherapy Collective, our therapists are all Registered Psychotherapists. Since children are highly impacted by family dynamics, we believe the most effective way to work with children is within the context of family therapy. With children aged 6-11, this often involves a combination of parent/caregiver-focused sessions, family sessions and potentially individual sessions. For youth aged 12-18, while our preference is to involve family/parents we realize the importance of the transition of adolescence and offer individual sessions and family sessions for teens.
