Julia Lippert

Registered Psychotherapist

Clinical Supervisor
Clinical Traumatologist (TITC-FT)

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.

Learn more about this novel approach where healing intertwines with the gentle strength of our equine partners. Embrace the unique therapeutic journey and learn more about this profound connection between humans and animals.

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.
