Shift truly cares about the wellness of your client, including the type of care they receive. We make therapy simple, actionable and relatable, and we know our team can successfully guide your client to find a better version of themselves–one session at a time.

We also acknowledge that there are many factors which can impact how accessible therapy is for someone; availability, location, designation, specialties, approaches, session types, price, and so on - whatever the variable is, we take all the unique needs into consideration and support clients in every way we can. 


No More Waitlists

We're always growing our therapy team, which means we never have waitlists even for our most in-demand specialties.


Open Everyday

Sessions are available everyday, including evenings and weekends. Our Care Team is available everyday, too.


Better Therapy

Our therapists are top-tier and are supported with ongoing professional development and clinical supervision to provide best-in-class care.



What types of therapy do you offer?

In short, a lot. We offer about 50 different approaches and cover about 80 different specialties. That's why our team plays a role in matching you with the right therapist.

Do you offer in-person sessions too?

Our clinic is operating 100% virtually. This means that all sessions are held by telephone or video to accommodate all client’s needs and schedules. Virtual therapy provides the opportunity to connect with a therapist in the comfort of your own home.

How do I pay for sessions?

Our services are covered in whole or in part by many benefits programs. Check you coverage for Registered Social Workers or Registered Psychotherapists. Payment is due at the end of each session, and then you submit a receipt to your benefits provider for reimbursement. Let us know if you need a hand figuring out your coverage or the process for reimbursement.

Can you complete a diagnosis or prescribe medication?

Unfortunately, we cannot diagnose or prescribe any medication. Depending on the needs of clients we can refer them externally to psychologists or psychiatrists.
