Richard Lipman is a Montreal-based psychologist who has been working as a clinician for over 25 years. Richard obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from McGill University in 1990 and earned his Master’s in Counselling Psychology, also from McGill, in 1992. While an undergraduate, Richard volunteered at both the Montreal Neurological Institute and The Mackay Centre, a rehabilitation facility with a focus on children and youth with motor or communication challenges. Richard completed his graduate-level clinical internship at The Counselling Service of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Upon graduation, he was offered a position at the hospital in The Counselling Service. Richard followed patients in the departments of psychiatry and family medicine and provided clinical training to family medicine residents. Richard later became the Co-Director and Coordinator of The Service. During his time with the Hospital, Richard undertook a three-year post-graduate training program at The Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies and Research in Montreal. He was privileged to have had, as clinical supervisor, the psychoanalyst, Dr. François de Carufel. In Richard’s private practice, located at The Queen Elizabeth Health Complex, he sees adults and older adolescents, providing insight-oriented and supportive short-term and long-term psychotherapy.

Richard has specialized training in the assessment and treatment of gender dysphoria. Richard also partners with several national employee assistance programs, such as Public Security Canada and The Salvation Army (Canada), among others. Richard’s practice is psychodynamically-based, while integrating elements of other theoretical orientations (humanist, existential and cognitive-behavioural) to provide the approach best-suited to each individual client. Richard is continually inspired by his clients as they strive to gain a better understanding of their life experiences and to develop healthier relationships with themselves and others.
