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.

  • Relationships
  • Parenting and Families
  • Depression

Through empathy and understanding, I am here to help individuals, couples, and families with the following challenges:

Alex Telford

Alex Telford

B.A., M.S.(Clinical Mental Health Counselling)

My name is Alex and I am a Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist with Blue Oaks Counselling and Wellness. My sincere commitment to the best possible care in counselling has led me to many years of study, training and experience.

With great dedication, I have supported many clients in coming through challenges in life with resilience and a renewed sense of direction. Drawing from the latest insights from psychological research, I help clients uncover new solutions and answers. I believe strongly that each person is an expert on their own story, and my role as a counsellor is to help you uncover the answers and direction you may already have.

My counselling is richly informed by my studies and training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Feminist Therapy. These perspectives focus on a positive, respect-based approach to counselling, which empowers clients to build lives defined by meaning, fulfillment, strength and respect.

I hold a BA, Master in Clinical Mental Health Counselling, and I specialize in: Addictions counselling, Depression, Anxiety, and Wellness.
