About Julia Smith

Halifax Mental Health Counsellor

I help teenagers and adults who want to be confident and happy but are feeling weighed down by anxiety, stress, and depression. My clients find that issues with school, work, relationships, identity, and/or self-esteem makes life difficult to enjoy. They feel stuck due to the problems they are experiencing.

Life can be tough! I understand and can help. In sessions, we'll figure out who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there. By using solution focused, narrative, collaborative, and strength based therapies, I'll help you build confidence, gain insight, and find happiness.

I'm a skilled counsellor that has been helping teens and adults since 2015. I have a Master of Education in Counselling (MEd), I am a Registered Counselling Therapist (RCT), and a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC). I also have past experience working as a counsellor at Dalhousie University and as a Child and Youth Mental Health Clinician for the BC government​. My master's thesis (researching mental illness and identity) was also nominated for a Governor Generals Award. Clinic hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The intake session costs $300 and sessions afterwards are $275 (tax included in prices).
