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.
We at Layla know that therapeutic alliance accounts for up to 75% of successful therapy outcomes. As such, Layla aims to fulfill client’s requests about their therapist.
