Megan Janzen Therapy
I believe that we all experience brokenness. I believe in the power of being heard with compassion and empathy. I believe that we can learn how to be kind with ourselves when we experience kindness.
You might be thinking about therapy because you want to work through a problem that persists in your life, to make a big choice, take a new step, sort through a past experience, or perhaps you simply want to feel better. Whatever brought you here, there is nothing too big or too small to bring into our therapeutic space.
This is your time.
My goal is to provide a space where you are safe to explore, where you are accepted, and where we can face your challenges together.
Relational psychotherapy is a process that places the focus on the journey rather than the destination. Together we can create a space that allows you to talk and me to listen and share our ideas about your experience together. Think of relational therapy as a place where we can sit in the mess and be curious, without judgment.
I work from a client centred framework that is feminist, anti-oppressive, sex positive, and LGBTQ*-affirmative.
I am a relational therapist (in clinical training) at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy, a graduate psychotherapy training program accredited by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
My client work is supervised off-site by experienced faculty psychotherapists. I am a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT) and abide by its code of ethics. I completed the one-year training program for professionals at the Gestalt Institute of Toronto, which is a CRPO accredited training program.
I have a BA in Conflict Resolution Studies from the University of Winnipeg and it was in this program that I discovered the study of family systems and attachment theory.

Relational psychotherapy is a powerful, effective model for working with people who suffer from emotional, psychological, and/or relational distress. Relational therapists help clients understand their own patterns of thoughts and feelings about themselves, as well as the power of significant past and present relationships to shape their experiences.
Through the process of therapeutic interaction, relational psychotherapy strengthens and transforms a client’s sense of self, enhancing their confidence and well-being in the world. Empowerment and growth through interpersonal connection are both the process and the goal of relational psychotherapy.
