Step 1: Find the right therapist with our matching questionnaire

Use our 5-minute matching tool to narrow down your search and find the top 1–3 therapists best suited to your family’s needs.

Step 2: Schedule your first appointment

At the end of the therapist matching survey, you’ll have the option to pick from your top therapist matches or to browse the rest of our DiveThru therapists. Once you’re ready, book your first appointment and add in the rest of the family members. The very first family therapy appointment booked will always be 80 minutes to account for the extra time needed for this initial intake session.

Step 3: Complete your forms

Log in to your DiveThru profile and head to Settings > Forms to find the family consent form for your first session. If you’ve downloaded the DiveThru App, you can complete them right in there! You can also use a desktop browser for this step by logging in to our portal. If you’re having trouble, you can also complete your family consent form during your first session with your therapist!

Step 4: Attend the therapy session with the family

Whether virtually or in person, we’re happy to welcome you to DiveThru! For those attending in person, our waiting room is cozy and relaxing and stocked with snacks, beverages, and fun mental health stickers. Our therapy rooms have large couches and we can provide fidget spinners, children’s toys, or colouring books to keep kiddos engaged. If you’re attending virtually, you will receive a secured video link emailed to each family member the day of your appointment.

Step 5: Schedule your future sessions

At the end of your session, your family and your therapist can discuss plan for treatment and schedule future sessions if it feels appropriate. Our studio coordinators will handle fee payment by charging your credit card on file (if virtual) and check in with you on preferred method of payment (if in person).
