About me, Agustina De Benedetti
Hi, I'm Agustina, I hold a BA (Hons) in Clinical Psychology and a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. I'm a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) at the College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario (CRPO).
For more than 5 years I have been helping adult and senior clients overcoming challenges in their lives by offering tailored treatments for stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, relationship or family difficulties, and life transitions (difficult breakups, divorce, immigration, retirement, etc.).
I specialize and got a certification as a Mental Health Professional by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and volunteer at Fertility Matters Canada to better help my clients their journeys for building their families (loss, infertility, assisted reproduction, and alternative family building).
My approach to therapy is flexible and integrative: I adapt the therapeutic approach to better meet the needs of each client. I incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution-focused Therapy, Mindfulness-based practices, and Psychodynamic Therapy. I work within a trauma-informed and culturally competent framework, and I'm committed to anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and inclusive practice.
I offer therapy in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
I believe in the innate strengths that lie in every person. I work collaboratively with my clients exploring and fostering those strengths while addressing their current difficulties to create meaningful and long-lasting changes in their lives.
