Client Value Framework

At Providence Therapy, our Client Value framework aims to assist clients in understanding our organizational model and help in selecting a therapist who best suits their needs by considering the clinician's areas of therapeutic experience and niche expertise.

This framework is designed to empower clients to make informed decisions when choosing a counsellor by outlining the value that a clinician brings to the client's unique needs and therapeutic goals. While all our team members possess exceptional skills, not every counsellor has specialized training or certifications in the same niche areas of support. It is our goal that this framework helps you find the best match based on your concerns!

Some counsellors offer a sliding scale – please inquire directly; counsellors listed are Independent Contractors and set their own fees in consideration of the clinic's suggested guide - please confirm fee schedule directly with your therapist of choice.
