Online therapy is here in Ontario!

Now you can speak to highly skilled therapists at the click of a button, right on Maple.

No more feeling overwhelmed with your thoughts. No more feeling like you have no one to speak to. Whatever you’re going through, you deserve to be heard. We’re bringing you instant access to professional counselling right on Maple – via secure chat, video, or over the phone.

How it works

  • Currently the service is available to residents and visitors in Ontario
  • Therapists are available everyday from 8am to 8pm ET
  • Log in to Maple from a desktop computer or your mobile to request a visit
  • Click on the “See the doctor” button and select “Psychotherapist”
  • You can choose to chat  by text or video, or over the phone
  • Visits are 25 minutes and $70
  • The cost is fully reimbursable by private insurance

In these compressed 25 minute sessions, you will be able to talk through what you’re experiencing in that very moment — whether it’s anxiety before a big date, or strategies to destress after a challenging day of work – giving you greater flexibility to access mental health support immediately rather than waiting for an appointment.
