His areas of expertise include relationships, attachment, LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy, culturally/community informed clinical practice, sexual orientation, gender identity, intersecting identities and mental health of minority individuals (LGBTQ+ people, immigrants, refugees, and ethnic and racial minorities), sexuality, life and career transitions, internalized stigma, clinical supervision, and training of counsellors/therapists.

Prior to completing his PhD in Counselling Psychology at McGill University, Dr Fuks pursued an MBA from the Schulich School of Business at York University, and has established himself in a number of challenging and evolving leadership roles, in both the public and private sector. He offers service to clients in four languages, and during his career was involved in a variety of international and multi-cultural ventures. Dr Fuks’ industry observations and experiences raised his awareness of the importance of newcomer and minority integration, and inspired his interest and ongoing involvement in research, teaching, and community initiatives pertinent to these issues. His research these days revolves mostly around intersecting identities and mental health of LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants, and refugees.
