Indivi­dual Therapy for Children and Youth



All children are precious to us. NavOn therapists have 200+ combined years of experience working with children and youth. We have many age-appropriate tools and approaches for engaging children and youth to help them reach their potential including art therapy, play therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and even a facility dog. We help children with mental health needs and neurodevelopmental/learning challenges build skills and resilience. We also have expertise in the treatment of trauma and sexual behaviour specific therapy.

One of our specialties is helping children and youth navigate difficult family experiences such as grief and loss as well as separation and divorce. Please view our services for child, youth, and families coping with separation and divorce.

Children and youth in therapy need privacy and a safe place to share their thoughts and feelings and so we meet individually with them. We believe working together with family and community to support children brings everyone along to the same destination. Our approach includes an opportunity for safe sharing when needed, in collaboration with our child clients that is respectful of privacy, to ensure children are supported in their healing and development.

We offer in-person and virtual therapy.

How much does it cost?

Costs depend on the training and experience of the mental health professional needed to meet your expectations and address your needs. Typically, fees range from $150 to $225 per clinical hour (50 minutes). In some cases, it may be possible to have therapy provided by a highly skilled clinical trainee for a lower hourly rate.

The number of appointments needed vary by person. Your therapist will discuss this at the beginning of therapy.

Within 24 hours after an appointment, you will receive an invoice by email. You can pay the invoice by e-transfer or credit card. It is also possible to pay by cheque or cash and to receive a paper-based invoice – please let us know in advance if cheque or cash is your preferred payment method.

Mental health providers are not paid by the Ontario Health Insurance Program (OHIP). However, many people can see a psychologist, psychotherapist, or social worker for no cost or very little cost.

  • If you are employed, you may have coverage or partial coverage as part of your benefits. Even if you do not have benefits at your place of work, you can purchase extended health coverage through a number of insurance companies.
  • If you are a veteran or a member of the Canadian Armed Forces you may have coverage.
  • Depending on your situation you may also be eligible for financial support through the Victim Quick Response Program, Jordan’s Principle, or the Non-insured Health Benefits Program.
