About Me

Johanna Benoit is a dedicated Registered Psychotherapist in the province of Ontario. Johanna holds her registration through the CRPO (College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario) and has a Bachelors in Psychology, a diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy and various certifications. Her focus is predominantly working through a psychodynamic lens, however her certification as a clinical trauma specialist offers a unique ability to help clients to understand and work with trauma and the body, in order to feel safe in participating in talk therapy. Clients get to explore their early childhood attachments, patterns, behaviors and defense mechanisms.
Johanna is also well-versed in assisting individuals coping with various life challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD and Complex PTSD and chronic illness, codependency, family conflict, grief, and stress among others.
Johanna also holds a certification in perinatal grief and loss and works with parents and families that experience miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, infant loss or child loss; she also has her own personal experience with this type of loss and so has a unique perspective so clients can feel understood and heard.
Johanna is particularly passionate about providing support to the LGBTQ+ community and focuses her practice on diversity, inclusion and allyship.
