Julia Lippert

Registered Psychotherapist
BA, MACP, RP, CRPO, OACCPP

My name is Julia Lippert and I am a Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist. I have been working in the mental health field since 2001, supporting families, couples and individuals. I now work together with my husband Kyle Lippert, in our multi-disciplinary clinic in Collingwood, Ontario. I have been privileged to support people in overcoming just about anything – with compassion and empathy.

I have supported clients to move from depression and anxiety to greater hope, strength and joy in their lives. And I have seen families rebuild relationships marked by loving communication, respect and a sense of fun. Working together through hard times can truly grow a sense of closeness and trust.

Fortunate to be recognised and valued by the communities I have served, I have also organised workshops, relationship conferences, counselling groups, parenting groups and have spoken at conferences on issues of relationships and parenting.

Specializations:
  • Relationships
  • Parenting and Families
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Teens and children

When life presents us with challenges, stresses and obstacles, psychotherapy can be a great and effective option. It allows clients to meet with a confidential, skilled and highly trained counsellor. By defining goals and hopes for therapy, together we can develop new strategies, skills, and begin to re-write a new or preferred future.
