I’m Julia Lippert, a Counsellor and Registered Psychotherapist with over fifteen years of experience in the mental health field. I provide counselling services for a diverse range of challenges, with a focus on trauma informed care.

The cornerstones of my approach are compassion, empathy and a commitment ongoing training so that I can provide clients with therapeutic modalities that have been proven to be effective. I have been fortunate to witnessed incredible transformations as clients move from places of darkness and overwhelm to rediscovering resilience, strength, hope and joy in their lives. Whether guiding clients through trauma recovery, facilitating healing in relationships or navigating challenging experiences, I am committed to understanding each client’s unique experience and providing dedicated support.


I integrate a number of evidence-based treatments into my counselling sessions, tailored to each client’s needs. I offer treatment for trauma, as well as anxiety, depression, grief and relationship issues. My treatment modalities include the following:

  • EMDR
  • Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR
  • Structural Dissociation Theory integration, for treatment of dissociation
  • Equine Assisted Trauma Therapy, EA-EMDR

I also draw from

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT),
  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (MCBT),
  • Relationship support informed by Gottman Relationship Research and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT),
  • Polyvagal Theory
  • Attachment Theory

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma leaves a finger print on our nervous system and can have a lasting impact. However, humans also have an amazing capacity to heal, to grow and to be resilient through the worst of experiences. As part of trauma therapy, it becomes important to teach our nervous system to flow back to a state of calm and to process the traumatic experiences that have impacted us.

My trauma therapy approach integrates latest research into the brain and nervous system. Through treatments like EMDR, Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR), and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, clients can have an opportunity to process traumatic events and to release the shock, overwhelm, disturbing emotions and sensations that keep them in a trauma space. These modalities have been shown to be effective to help clients with trauma symptoms to restore a sense of peace and to reconnect with themselves and a sense of well-being.

My training in trauma therapy includes the following:

  • EMDR Therapist, Level 1 & Level 2
  • DBR, Deep Brain Reorienting
  • Structural Dissociation Theory trained, for treatment of dissociation
  • Equine Assisted Trauma Therapy, EA-EMDR
  • Early Intervention Field Traumatologist (TITC-FT)
  • Clinical Traumatologist (TITC-FT)
