Who We Are
Layla empowers Canadians to take greater control of their mental health, bridging the gap between wanting care and getting it. Through a client-centered and personalized approach, we make it simpler to connect with the right therapist. As of today, we work with over 75 wonderful partner therapists in Ontario. Our client-therapist matching process takes into consideration a client’s presenting challenges and goals, clinician skills & experience, and cultural and interpersonal fit. Our clients rate the match with their therapist as 9/10, and 90% of our clients return to therapy after their first session. 

The Layla team thoughtfully curates the community of therapists we work with, focusing on always finding high quality mental health care providers. We work with a diverse client base with a broad range of backgrounds, life experiences, and needs, and are looking to build an equally diverse community of therapists to support them.

We are seeking RSWs or RPs interested in working with our clients on a part time, contract basis as independent private practice providers. We typically partner with two categories of therapists: 1. Those looking to grow their private practice, and 2. Those looking to focus their practice on their clinical areas of interest. 

Basic Requirements For Consideration
- Licensed psychotherapy provider in Ontario, registered in good standing as an MSW, RP,  C.Psych, or C.Psych.Assoc.
- Masters-level (or equivalent) training in Social Work (Clinical Focus), Clinical/Counseling Psychology, Marriage & Family Therapy or a related field from a reputable institution.
- Minimum of 2,000 hours/2 years of post-graduate clinical experience (community or private practice)
- Training in evidence-based treatment approaches. This can include a combination of: CBT, DBT, EFT, EMDR, attachment-focused, narrative, sensorimotor, or other approaches. Use of anti-oppressive, culturally-sensitive, and/or trauma-informed frameworks.
- Professional malpractice liability insurance in place (or able to secure).
- Comfortable using technology.
- Able to take on 4+ new clients per month on average (this is a general target, there are no minimum obligations on either side. Actual number varies based on therapist availability, location, and practice focus).

- Preferred: Access to an appropriate office space to see clients once it is advised to do so (or plan to secure an office in the future). Note: In line with public health and college recommendations, we expect that sessions in the imminent future will be predominantly online. Layla provides clients and therapists with access to a secure platform to deliver virtual sessions.
