Registered Psychotherapist

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. I have guided clients in their healing from trauma and towards a path of hope and peace. And I have seen families rebuild relationships marked by loving communication and a sense of fun.  Working together through hard times can truly grow a sense of closeness and trust.

In my free time, you will find me out in nature, enjoying life with my husband and kids or spending time at a local horse barn. My love for horses and the developing research into the effectiveness of Equine-Assisted Therapy has led me to become trained in this wonderful modality of therapy. I am currently training to become certified as an Equine Assisted Psychotherapist. Stay tuned for future horse-assisted counselling sessions.
