Layla Care Psychotherapy for STD/LTD and RTW

Who is Layla?

Layla Care is a mental health service that facilitates personalized access to individual, couples, and group therapy.. A selection of our therapists are trained in functional and rehabilitative mental health services including supporting clients who are off work because of an injury and/or illness to get back to work. We believe this specialized training and experience supports clients to progress more quickly towards their goals and optimal mental health and functioning - and ultimately a faster Return to Work (RTW).  Our mission in the RTW space is:

To support our clients through individualized and interdisciplinary care using evidence-based practice to ensure a timely, safe, and successful return to work.

Why refer to Layla?

  • Quick access: we will connect with clients within one business day and are generally able to book clients with therapists within 2 weeks of referral.
  • RTW-focus: any therapist your clients are matched with (if you specify it’s a STD/LTD referral) will be trained in our RTW Philosophy and way of working, including working from a strengths/ability-focused mindset using evidence-based psychotherapies
  • Roster: if a client has a specific need (therapeutic, matching on experience or personal identifiers, or logistical) that your providers can’t meet, you can refer to Layla as we have a roster of diverse therapists trained in various modalities (e.g., DBT, CBT, EMDR, ACT, mindfulness, etc.)
  • Standard pricing: any RSW or RP that your client is matched with is charged at the same price for services (evaluation/evaluation report, psychotherapy sessions, case management - as defined in our pricing chart)
  • Quality assurance: Our therapists have been vetted and interviewed as well as trained in RTW-focus and our reporting expectations. They use our report template (shared below) and are accountable to Layla

In keeping with our philosophy on providing client-centric, individualized treatment to help clients successfully and sustainably return to work, we generally request a minimum approval of 8 sessions. We feel anything less than this may leave clients in a position where they are not getting the treatment they need to see significant and lasting benefits. In certain instances, the full 8 sessions will not be needed/used (e.g., mild presentations, clients who need a very specific piece of skill-building, etc.) but it’s important for us to know the approval is there in case the sessions are needed.

Our team:

We have a network of 150 partner therapists across ON, AB, and BC plus 7 full time, in-house therapists whose profiles are below. We also have 2 supervising psychologists who oversee the clinical team.

Supervision/Leadership team:

Languages:

We provide services in English and can accommodate other language requests either through multilingual staff, or by using interpreters (**interpretation services would be billed on top of normal session fees. Our current partner is Language Line and services are billed at their standard fee).

Provinces:

Our practitioners are all currently located in Ontario and practice virtually so they can serve clients across the province. We can also serve english-speaking clients in Quebec. We expect partner therapists in Alberta and British Columbia to start taking on referrals by September 2022 (we can train them earlier if there is a specific need).

In person/Virtual:

Our in-house providers only see clients virtually. Therapists in our wider provider network are starting to see clients in-person so you will soon be able to request in-person appointments as well.

Platform for therapy:

We currently use a white labeled version of the telehealth application called OnCall Health for our virtual therapy sessions. OnCall Health is PHIPA and PIPEDA compliant.
