Home: Joan Marsman, a Marriage and Family Therapist

Welcome!  I’m Joan Marsman, a Marriage and Family Therapist. For more than 20 years, I have helped individuals and couples develop more satisfying and passionate relationships. I offer counseling and therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I specialize in sex therapy and couple and marriage counseling. With offices in West Toronto and Oakville, I am accessible to Toronto, Oakville, Mississauga, Etobicoke, Burlington, and Brampton. I work part time for Toronto Psychological Services.

People seek counseling and therapy for a variety of reasons. Often they are looking for strategies to manage life and relational challenges.  Sometimes they are involved in a conflict and they need help to resolve it.  Whatever the reasons for seeking out counseling and therapy, I help clients explore a wide range of concerns and then replace patterns of living that are not part of their life plan.

People request sex therapy when they experience concerns or difficulties in the sexual aspects of their relationships. This can include a number of issues such as low sexual desire, sexual dissatisfaction, painful intercourse, orgasm difficulties or erectile difficulties. I work collaboratively with my clients to revitalize sexual wellness and sexual response.
