Get to Know Jansu

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

Jansu Edis (she/her)

Hi Folks! Thank you for taking the time to join me here!

​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, brave & 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, liberation of all oppressed groups, & 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 liberation oriented, 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 & 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.

This is an Affirming & Brave Space

Welcome to brave & safe space where we embrace neurodiversity & 2SLGBTQIA+ identities, providing affirming care tailored to your unique needs.

Here, you are seen, heard, & valued in all of your intersecting & unique identities.

I invite all folks to join me exactly as they are.

Liberation Oriented, Intersectional,
Culturally Sensitive

Individualized

Your journey is unique, and so is my approach. 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, fostering a therapeutic environment that respects and supports your personal growth and healing process.Inspired by decolonial therapy, I understand the importance of honoring your unique experiences, identities, and cultural backgrounds. Unlike the one-size-fits-all approach often seen in Western psychology, I individualize support to respect your distinct needs. This ensures our work together is inclusive, adaptive, and truly reflective of your personal strengths and goals.

Trauma Informed

I approach therapy with the three pillars of

trauma-informed care:​

prioritizing safety to create a supportive environment where you can explore without judgment; fostering trustworthiness and transparency through open communication and clear boundaries & expectations; and promoting empowerment by recognizing your strengths and agency in reclaiming control over your healing journey.

Client Centred, Non-judgemental

At the heart of my practice is a commitment to providing my clients with unconditional positive regard, empathetic understanding, genuine curiosity, a non-judgemental attitude, and reliable care. Your journey is uniquely yours, and I am here to support you with compassion and respect, empowering you to explore, grow, and thrive in a safe and nurturing therapeutic space

Experience therapy that honors your unique identity and lived experiences. 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 and inform our life experiences and mental well-being. Recognizing that the personal is political, my approach is rooted in liberation psychology, acknowledging how societal structures shape mental health. I provide an intersectional and culturally sensitive space where your voice is heard and valued.
