Approach to Therapy

A Safe & Affirming Space for Individuals & Partners to Engage in Tough & Tender Conversations

I see you as a beautifully complex being and approach therapy with the understanding that our many identities (culture, race, sexuality, ability, gender, etc.) greatly impact & inform our life experiences and mental wellbeing.

I tailor my expertise to meet you where you are on your healing journey.

I genuinely welcome you to join me exactly as you are.

I approach therapy with the three pillars of trauma-informed care:

Safety & Trust

Choice & Voice

Resilience & Recovery

I provide my clients with:

Unconditional positive regard

Empathetic understanding

Genuine curiosity

Non-judgemental attitude

& Reliable care

Intersectional,
Culturally Sensitive

Individualized

Trauma Informed

Client Centred,
Non-judgemental

Jansu psychotherapist

I enter the therapy room as a human first, a therapist second. As a queer bi-cultural woman, an immigrant, a mama, & a survivor of sorts, I join you with my lived experiences, research, education, & effective therapeutic skills. By offering a warm, non-judgemental, empathetic, trusting, safe & affirming space,  I am here to meet your unique needs, uncover your personal strengths & create strategies to live the life you value & deserve.

I am committed to cultural humility & work under the philosophy that our multiple intersecting identities (race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, culture) greatly impact our life experiences and mental well-being.

My approach to therapy is integrative, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, anti-racist, intersectional, LGBTQ2IAS+ affirming, person-centered, and flexible. My background in Psychology, Queer & Sexuality Studies allows me to draw from multiple disciplines and offer my clients prevalent perspectives.  

I draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative techniques, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and follow a client-centered approach to support my clients.
