    About Johnathon Fortune

    Life can throw all sorts of challenges our way, and sometimes, you just need someone who truly understands. That’s where I come in. My approach is all about providing you with a warm and empathetic space, grounded in evidence-based practices.

    I bring a unique blend of personal experience, compassion, and insight to our work together. I specialize in supporting men and individuals under the 2SLGBTQI+ umbrella, and I’m well-versed in a wide range of areas, from mental health and gender identity to substance use and trauma. Whether you’re navigating issues related to self-esteem, relationships, or systemic oppression, I’ve got your back.

    My focus is on nurturing a strong therapeutic relationship between us, one that moves at a pace that suits your needs and is solution-focused. You can count on a compassionate and nurturing environment where we can explore new facets of yourself and your life. I approach our work from a trauma-informed, strengths-based, and anti-oppressive perspective, acknowledging the impact of systems like Racism, Sexism, Heterosexism, Transphobia, Fatphobia, and Ableism on your journey.

    If you’re wrestling with anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, relationships, identity, or grief and loss, know that reaching out for help is a courageous step. I understand that it’s not always easy, especially for marginalized communities that have been silenced and devalued. With over 10 years of experience, a diploma in Child and Youth Care from New Brunswick Community College, a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Calgary, and a Master of Social Work from Wilfrid Laurier University, I’m here to support you on your path to healing and self-discovery. Let’s embark on this journey together.

    Are you ready to take the first step?

    My Values


    Confidentiality is a respected part of social worker's code of ethics. I understand that for people to feel comfortable talking about private and revealing information, they need a safe place to talk about anything they'd like, without fear of that information leaving the room. I take your privacy very seriously, with only a few limitations.


    Creativity is like a superpower that can show up in countless forms. It's what makes life rich and meaningful. In my practice, I harness the magic of creativity to assist you in shaping and defining your sense of self. Together, we'll venture into uncharted territories, seeing the world from fresh angles and discovering innovative solutions to tackle whatever hurdles come your way. So, let's unlock your creative potential and make your life truly extraordinary.


    Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk, stated “Whenever any kind of suffering arises, even if it’s minor or subtle, recognize that it is there and send it compassion.” This simple practice is powerful. The therapeutic process can help you let go of whatever is bothering you and live more fully in the present moment.


    Acceptance is like giving yourself a big, friendly nod of approval, no matter who you are or what you're going through. It's about being true to yourself without any harsh self-criticism. So, if you're ready to explore this journey of self-acceptance, you're in the right place. I'm here to help you on that path to a happier, healthier you.
