This can be due to a variety of reasons ranging from:

THERAPY OPTIONS TO FIT YOUR BUDGET
We understand that accessing effective private mental health support is not always within everyone's budget. To increase accessibility to services, PsychSolutions will be resuming their internship program in the fall of 2023. Through our internship program, clients will continue to have access to mental health services, but at a reduced rate. Since our interns work closely with their supervisor, who is a fully licensed psychologist, many extended health benefit plans continue to approve coverage. Through the internship program, clients can opt to see intern therapists for individual sessions or by attending a support group.
Contact us to learn more about this program and if it would be a good fit for your needs.
Note: No longer accepting intern applicants for Fall 2023-Spring 2024.
