Psychiatric Consultation

via Psychotherapy Matters Virtual Clinic

Reflections Therapy connects our clients who is requesting to see a psychiatrist. We strive to make Psychiatric services accessible with significantly reduced wait times. The traditional route of receiving prescribed medication results in most clients waiting for 6-18 months for a psychiatric consult. Because Reflections Therapy collaborates with Psychotherapy Matters Virtual Clinic (PMVC), your wait is significantly reduced to mere weeks. These consultations come with the added convenience of meeting the psychiatrist virtually while in your therapist’s office or your own home. The Psychiatrist and Therapist work collaboratively to ensure you receive comprehensive care.

Please note there is an administrative fee of $50 + taxes.

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.
