Psychiatry Consultation

Psychotherapy Matters Virtual Clinic

Our clinic in Timmins, ON offers a collaborative partnership with Psychotherapy Matters—a virtual platform that connects therapists and their clients to psychiatrists, making the journey towards recovery less stressful. Psychiatrists are medical doctors that prescribe medication and offer a psychiatric diagnosis. Throughout the process and during these psychiatric consultations, your therapist is always present to help you feel comfortable and contribute to the doctor’s evaluation if required. Most clients wait 6-18 months for a psychiatric consult. Because we collaborate with Psychotherapy Matters, your wait is significantly reduced to 6 to 8 weeks. These consultations come with the added convenience of meeting the psychiatrist virtually while in your therapist’s office or your own home.

Call our office to inquire if your therapist collaborates with Psychotherapy Matters.

Connecting & Collaborating


 

How do I book with a psychiatrist?

Please let your therapist know if you’re interested in seeing a psychiatrist. Consultations can be booked after your second psychotherapy session. You will get a referral form to give to your family doctor. Once the family doctor has faxed the referral form to Psychotherapy Matters, your therapist can book your appointment!
