About Julia


Counselling Therapist

  • Julia has a M.A. in Counselling Psychology
  • She welcomes all clients with a safe, empathetic place to explore their concerns, develop new skills, gain new perspectives and enhance their wellness.
  • Julia uses a person-centred, integrative approach intended to be adapted to the needs of the individual client. She draws from a number of therapeutic frameworks   including:  interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, cognitive-behavioural therapies, and emotion-based therapies.
  • She works with all adult populations, but has a special interest in working with women, seniors, and couples. 
  • Julia has developed a significant interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. She has received training in these specialized modalities and utilizes these tools and techniques in sessions with individuals and couples.  

Other Information

Julia has worked for over a decade as an MRI technologist (and still does) which has created a fascination with neuroscience and its application to psychology. Luckily, neuroscience research is currently a major factor in improving how therapists can better help clients. This knowledge and research bridges the gap for her between the two professions. 

When not studying or working, Julia enjoys a variety of creative pursuits such as watercolor and mixed media collage. When appropriate, she enjoys integrating creative expression into her therapeutic work.

Your story


Your story may be very challenging but it is welcome here. My view of therapy is holistic. I strive understand my clients well and build goals around what you desire to create from your life. We will work together to decrease distress and to increase wellness. 

Counselling can assist you with viewing your life from a new perspective, increasing your ability to be psychologically and emotionally flexible, understanding your own history, learning new coping skills, and enhancing wellness.

Therapy may be brief if symptoms are mild or are regarding a focused issue. Therapy may be longer if the problem is complex or has been affecting you for a long time.
