Therapists & Counselors. Maggie's has developed a list of therapists with experience working one-on-one with sex workers in a respectful and non-judgmental manner. Most of them do not have sex work experience themselves but do support sex-worker self-determination and understand some of the issues we face. Please contact us for details at or call 416-964-0150
