Julia Levitan is a Ph.D. student in Clinical Psychology at McGill University. Her therapeutic style is warm, free of judgment, and transparent. Clients can expect to feel deeply valued and understood. Julia takes a tailored and collaborative approach to treatment, drawing inspiration from cognitive behavioural therapies, emotion-focused therapy, and schema therapy. She is passionately committed to increasing clients’ self-awareness and self-compassion, and to empowering clients to practice healthier patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving on the road to healing.
Prior to her work at Mindspace, Julia trained at McGill University’s Student Wellness Hub and at the Allan Memorial Institute’s Sex and Couple Therapy Service. She has experience providing individual and couple therapy to adults struggling with a wide range of difficulties, including interpersonal/relationship issues, questions of identity (e.g., LGBTQ+), sexual problems, low self-esteem, grief, stress and anxiety, low mood, and challenging life transitions.
