How it all started
CBT Associates was founded in 2002 by Dr. Peter Farvolden and Dr. Eilenna Denisoff. They opened their practice together in response to the overwhelming demand they saw for high-quality, evidence-based psychological treatment. They found that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helped people achieve a healthier, more balanced life. By 2015, CBT Associates was a thriving practice in downtown Toronto. Claire Duboc joined Dr. Peter and Dr. Eilenna to grow CBT Associates’ in-clinic services to continue to meet the increasing demand for mental health care and improve patient access in Ontario and Canada. But, it quickly became clear that even expanding clinic services was not enough to meet the needs of Canadians.
Our organization transformed from providing traditional weekly therapy to becoming an innovative tech start-up and market builder. We recognized that technology could provide the solution and embarked on the design and development of the MindBeacon platform in January 2016. Fundamentally changing our business model, a digital platform allows us to bring the optimal approach of treatment to as many as people as possible, in a stepped-care model.
MindBeacon is based on validated research, decades of relevant experience and has been tested in the largest network of CBT clinics in the country. Driving impactful mental health outcomes and ready for scaled implementation, MindBeacon helps to fill the gap in our healthcare landscape for people experiencing mental health problems by being accessible, affordable and effective.
