Therapists Connect

Therapists Connect is a place for the diverse community of professionals practicing psychotherapy in the Toronto area to meet and connect with other therapists; a place to discuss and creatively explore issues of concern and interest specific to conducting psychotherapy in private practice.

about therapists connect

Therapists Connect was started in October, 2016 to provide a place for psychotherapists in the Toronto area to connect, socialize, and organize. We are currently over 550 members strong and meet every 6 weeks or so to discuss issues of relevance to practicing psychotherapy in private practice, to network and to have fun. In addition we run a listserv where members can ask questions of each other, make referrals and discuss professional development.

If you are involved in the psychotherapy community in Toronto and would like to join Therapists Connect (it is free), we would love to have you. Please consult the listserv guidelines before joining.

Therapists Connect is brought to you by Liz Phillips, Erin Griffin, and Ted Leckie. Learn more about who Liz, Erin and Ted are at the bottom of the page.
