Become a partnered therapist

Our goal is to allow for renewed prioritization of real, genuine client care. We're building a curated community of private practitioners in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and Nova Scotia to support our diverse clients.

Focus more on providing therapy

Unlike listing services, let Layla bring you engaged clients so you can focus on therapy and professional development. We take care of marketing, the initial guidance and screening call with the client (offered for free), book the first session, and handle ongoing billing. We also offer our clients a secure e-counseling platform as an option to reach you.

Tailored collaboration

We tailor our collaboration to suit your private practice, and you retain control over your schedule and workload. There are no monthly or referral fees. We contract you directly on a fee for service basis for each client that you accept from Layla.

Clients that fit your practice

We take time to understand your practice. We also take time to understand the client’s challenges, goals, therapist preferences, and logistical limitations. We appreciate both sides of the therapy equation. Better fit means increased client retention and improved therapy outcomes.

A new model and community

Be part of a new model to simplify clients access to therapy. We work with compassionate and competent therapists committed to achieving better outcomes for their clients. All our therapists are experienced in their focus areas and are licensed mental health providers in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

Basic requirements for consideration

  • Licensed psychotherapy provider in Ontario, Alberta or British Columbia, registered in good standing as an RSW, RP,  C.Psych, or C.Psych.Assoc.
  • Masters-level (or equivalent) training in Social Work (Clinical Focus), Clinical/Counseling Psychology, Marriage & Family Therapy or a related field from a reputable institution.
  • Minimum of 1,000 hours/2 years of post-graduate clinical experience (community or private practice)
  • Training in evidence-based treatment approaches. This can include a combination of: CBT, DBT, EFT, ACT, EMDR, MI, attachment-focused therapy, narrative therapy, sensorimotor therapy or other evidence-based approaches.
  • Professional malpractice liability insurance in place (or able to secure).
  • Comfortable using technology.
  • Ability to see clients in one of the following settings: your office, online (secure platform provided by Layla), or at client home (in which case you must have access to a vehicle)

If you are identified as a successful applicant, the Layla team will contact you by email about next steps. Here’s what you can expect in our recruitment process:

Our team will coordinate an initial video meeting (15 mins) with you to share more about Layla, and also review your application submission with you. Our interview process includes two steps: an online video-based assessment tool (30 mins), and if successful, you will be invited to a clinical video interview with our team (60 mins). Due to the sensitive nature of our work, Layla also requires successful completion of a background check facilitated electronically by Layla. If you are a therapist that also offers in-person therapy sessions, the Layla team will also request a tour of your office space, in-person or virtually.
