Frequently Asked Questions

Is sex therapy regulated in Ontario?

In Ontario, sex therapy is an unregulated health profession. So what does this mean?
While the practice of sex therapy is not yet regulated, healthcare practitioners who offer sex therapy MUST be regulated and registered under one of the six regulatory bodies in Ontario that can provide the controlled act of psychotherapy, such as Registered Psychotherapists.


Our Registered Psychotherapist Taylor is in the process of becoming an AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists) Certified Sex Therapist- a title that requires extensive ongoing education and training in sex therapy, clinical experience navigating complex and diverse therapeutic areas, and supervision provided by an AASECT Certified Supervisor.

At Embodied Sexual Wellness and Psychotherapy, we strongly believe in accountability, and facilitating safe and effective care.

How often should I expect to have therapy sessions?

Frequency of sessions depends on many factors, such as presenting concerns/goals for therapy, and appropriate time for reflection and incorporating practices/exercises in between sessions. The frequency of sessions should have therapeutic value, while also reflecting your unique needs. You can expect that the frequency of your sessions may fluctuate over the course of your therapeutic journey.

Can I get sessions reimbursed through my healthcare benefit plan?

While we do not offer direct billing, you will be provided with a detailed receipt after your sessions that can be submitted to your healthcare plan for reimbursement if this service is covered. Please check to see what your plan covers, as some are specific as who they identify as approved providers to facilitate therapy. Taylor is a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.
