Could This Be You?

Do you believe close relationships are as important for human beings as food, water, and shelter? Do you feel most relationships can be saved by helping couples understand that misunderstanding, not malice, is at the root of relationship distress? Are you a registered mental health professional in private practice who would like to grow and refine your business?

If so, we’d like to talk with you.

Couples In Step is a boutique-style agency (we don’t want to be too big or multi-faceted) that works solely with couples to create secure and safe relationships through rebuilding, repair, and recreating security and trust in the partner relationship.

Our therapeutic model has no room for blame – we believe both parties are part of relationship distress, and we foster positive motivation in overcoming reactive/difficult behaviour. We believe our clients are the relationship, not the individuals. We are proud of the many successes our clients have achieved over the past decades of our practice, and now want to expand our outreach by partnering with like-minded health professionals.

Seeking Independent Contractors

We are looking to add two or three therapists to our roster who are able to see a minimum of eight Couples in Step clients each week for 75-minute time slots, with three to five of  these client appointment times after 3:30 p.m. on weekdays or on weekends.

In particular, we are seeking Social Workers (MSW, RSW) or registered psychotherapists (RP) who have a current private practice with their own office location in the Toronto area.

Our expectation is that you participate in workshops, professional development opportunities and team meetings all to better your practice and business.

This is an independent contract position that allows for building your own caseload, gaining business acumen, and being part of a larger vision — all while earning a great living along with a great team.


  • Master’s of Social Work and Registered with the OCSWSSW, or a registered psychotherapist registered with CRPO. Must have active liability insurance in Ontario.
  • EFT trained – at least an EFT externship – with a goal of certification.
  • Complimentary skills with training in areas such as sex therapy, addictions, discernment counselling, or trauma.
  • Experience working in secure video conference formats.
  • Knowledge and experience of marketing your practice, writing blogs, making videos, and running workshops or groups is an asset.
  • Experience in OWL for case notes, billing etc. is an asset.

What We Offer

We offer a preferential fee split based on your EFT skills and/or couples experience. We give you a supportive work environment, administrative support, and the backing of a well established leading couples-only therapeutic agency. This means we can provide a steady list of clients to keep you engaged as a Couples in Step therapist.
