About First Session

Launched in Toronto in the Spring of 2019, First Session originated from a simple, widespread problem: How do you find the right therapist?

When turning to Google and other directories, we shouldn't need to rely on an outdated selfie, and a long-winded, self written bio to assess who we might want to speak with.

At First Session we strongly believe that the fit between you and your therapist is the most important factor for a successful outcome.

First Session is determined to create a user friendly, transparent, and private experience for those searching for a therapist.

Our Therapists

Each therapist on First Session has been vetted, interviewed, and filmed in-person by a member of our team.

In providing a short video for each therapist, we hope to help you determine your fit in the matter of minutes, not hours.

Online Sessions

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our therapists are only offering online, remote sessions. Once you book a session, your therapist will contact you with instructions on how to connect online.

Come be social with us.

First Session is active on Instagram, LinkedIn, and somewhat active on Twitter. Please give us a follow, and help #endthestigma around mental health.
