We are a community of therapists working together to provide you with exceptional support, compassion, and guidance.
What makes us different?
We specialize in sex therapy and couples counselling, therefore all of our therapists have undergone extensive training with the Westland Academy of Clinical Sex Therapy, and are Certified Clinical Sexologist's with the American Board of Sexology (ABS). We have therapists that specialize in all different facets of sexual health and wellness, with areas of focus ranging from low libido, painful intercourse, LGBTQIA2S+ concerns, erectile dysfunction, premature and delayed ejaculation, BDSM/Kink concerns, to Polyamory (ENM) or non-conforming relationship dynamics. Our therapists also work with common concerns ranging from anxiety and depression to trauma and attachment-related dynamics.
Aside from our focus on sex therapy and couples counselling, we also pivot from the norm by working to support each other, as we know that communities working together make us all stronger and wiser. We, therefore, actively work together through regular supervision, therapist consultations, and outsourced continuing education and training. This means we are working as hard as you are, to bring the most current research and care to every therapy session you attend, using all the tools and support we have available, to help you grow.

Justin Paulsen, MCP, RCC, ABS
Hi I’m Justin (he/him) a Psychotherapist, Couples Counsellor, and Clinical Sexologist with the following completed training and experience: Registered Clinical Counsellor # 19969 (RCC) with the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC). Certified Clinical Sexologist #23146 with the American Board of Sexology (ABS) Master of Counselling Psychology degree from Adler University. Completed training with the Westland Academy of Clinical Sex Therapy in topics focused on sexual consent & communication and working with BDSM/Kinky clients. Completed Level 1 training of the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy. Worked as a researcher with the Westland Academy of Clinical Sex Therapy. Helped develop training for clinicians with a focus on various sexual dysfunctions, such as ED (erectile dysfunction), PE/DE (premature and delayed ejaculation), and GPPD (Genito-Pelvic Pain and Penetration Disorder). Work as a counsellor with the LGBTQIA+ community at Health Initiative For Men, tackling challenges with clients surrounding sexuality, gender expression, relationships, sex, and more. For the better part of my life, I have been learning and training how to help people of all genders and sexual expressions tackle some of the confusing and difficult parts of life. I know what it's like to feel stuck, whether in your personal identity, sex life, relationships, career, or just life in general. I also know a lot of these topics can be tough to talk about, and that's why I'm here. Counselling sessions can provide an environment of trust, compassion, and safety for us to explore some of these areas together without the burden of being judged. Obtaining a Master of Counselling Psychology degree from Adler University allowed me to hone my skills as a listener and a helper of people in the counselling space. My work with you will be tailored to your needs, based on how you identify as a person and what has or hasn't worked for you. I believe we are all complex, well-rounded human beings and therefore a holistic and integrative approach to healing is most effective. In my work, I predominantly draw from Client-Centered, Emotion-Focused, Cognitive-Behavioural, Somatic, and Mindfulness practices. By attending sessions, you will be given the opportunity to learn new skills and tools that you can take with you into your day-to-day, helping you feel better equipped to manage life's challenges. Together we can start to look at what brought you here, what’s keeping you stuck, and what possible ways there are to move forward. Fortunately, you've already made a step toward change by being here, and I’d love to continue with you on that journey. I offer 50- and 80-minute virtual counselling sessions that can be booked by contacting me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Registered Clinical Counsellor
Master of Education in Counselling Psychology
Nicole Fofonoff, R.C.C., M.Ed. Counselling Psychology
Hello, my name is Nicole (she/her) and I support folks who may be struggling with feelings of anxiousness and depression, or who are in the perinatal/postpartum period. I dive with you into your past hurts, current coping strategies and thought patterns and support you in understanding where these came from and what we can do now to find some peace. My aim is to reduce distress and feelings of guilt and shame in the lives of my clients so that they may fully connect with themselves and their families again. My work centers on client empowerment and recognizing the uniqueness of each of our stories. I pull from techniques within Internal Family Systems parts work, Adlerian psychology and mindful self compassion practices to create a therapeutic space unique to you. I have had the privilege of working with children, youth, and adults experiencing a wide range of life's challenges and look forward to walking alongside you in your discovery and healing. If you are specifically seeking perinatal or postpartum therapeutic support please read the following. Life during pregnancy and new parenthood is made to seem like it should be the most joyous time. While many aspects of this transition can hold great happiness, many people feel immense fear, stress and loss during this time as well. Despite how common it is to feel this mix of emotions, we are made to feel guilty for any emotion that isn't positive! I recognize the need to hold space for all emotions during the prenatal and postpartum stages, to reduce shame, isolation and suffering in the lives of my clients. Counselling during these periods of life not only benefits the client, but the child, the partner and the family as a whole entity. If you are pregnant or have given birth and are feeling anxious, detached, depressed or helpless, please reach out. Postpartum blues will impact approximately 50% - 75% of new mothers. It is perfectly normal to experience fluctuating emotions that don't align with how we've been told to feel. However, postpartum depression and anxiety impedes your ability to function day-to-day and connect with your baby. Our work together can connect you to more social supports, manage symptoms and guide you towards recovery. It is never too late to seek help. Pregnancy loss is an area of grief that often feels impossible to navigate. No one knows what to say so many people feel abandoned or further hurt by what is said to them. It is hard to imagine anything more heartbreaking than this loss, and you are deserving of so much support and space to grieve. I recognize the vastly unique ways in which we all grieve, from our childhoods, to our religious or spiritual beliefs, to our family supports and rituals. Using a trauma-informed, person-centered approach, you can process your loss safely and be guided towards healing. You were never meant to do this alone. I offer 60- and 90-minute virtual counselling sessions that can be booked by contacting me via email at email@example.com
