I'm so happy with Layla services! Layla made finding an individual therapist and a group therapy program so easy. I was able to compare therapist profiles and ask for help from the Care Coordinators. This was my first time looking for formal therapy, and Layla made the process way less intimidating. I recommend!!
I have experienced great feedback from my patients when it comes to linking them to Layla mental health services. The intake process is streamlined and quick, and patients get connected with a therapist easily. Patients who have connected successfully with a therapist through Layla say that they have had incredible breakthroughs when it comes to managing their mental health with the psychotherapy and supportive counselling that Layla provides.
Layla’s thoughtful intake process helps patients connect with mental health practitioners who are best suited to their individual needs. As a referring physician, this gives me confidence that these patients will get the support they need to better their mental health.
A very thoughtful and compassionate approach to health care and ensuring each of its users accesses services best suited to individual needs. The service is particularly helpful for "breaking the ice" when embarking on the therapy/counselling journey for the first time. Staff is kind, responsive and very professional.
Intake was amazingly professional and easy. They matched me to someone who is just a great fit and we've been making more progress than I've had with other therapists. I've had to move around quite a bit due to work, and now that we're having our sessions online I look forward to having this be a long-term relationship regardless of my location.
Layla Care has been a lifesaver, literally, for so many of my patients. In a healthcare system that is sadly failing more with each day, it is such a relief to know that you can rely on the Layla Care team to efficiently and effectively match your patient with a therapist who is right for them. My practice would not be the same without them. Thank you!!
When therapy and counselling are the chosen course of treatment for your patient, it can often be hard to find the right provider for them. There are many variables: location, availability, designation and insurance coverage specifics, specialization, quality, price, online option, etc. As part of the broader healthcare community, Layla supports primary care and other healthcare providers with reliable psychotherapy referrals that take into consideration the unique needs of each patient.
After completing a brief digital intake form, patients book a time to speak with one of our Care Coordinators. During the phone consultation, we work with your patient to review their situation, current challenges, and goals for therapy while discussing provider options.
Providers are contracted by Layla. Our vetting process includes credential check, in-depth interview, space inspection, and ongoing collection of client feedback.
