Andre Benoit, M.Sc., R. Psych.
Hi! I'm Andre Benoit, Registered Psychologist (CAP #4648), Certified Forest Therapy Guide, and founder of Deep Roots Therapies.
I really dig combining traditional therapy techniques with intuitive sensory-based activities that get us out of our heads, into our bodies, to experience nature, people, the world all around us.
My style is less directive, relative to other therapists, I do not profess to be an expert on what you should do. But I am highly skilled at guiding and listening and choosing tools and strategies that yield results.
After completing my Masters Degree at Dalhousie University in Halifax in 2012, I moved to Whitehorse, Yukon where I worked as a Substance Use Counsellor, Mental Health Therapist, Provisional Psychologist completing psychological assessments and individual and couples therapy.
I moved to Calgary in early 2017, where I have worked in private practice, but my main gig since December, 2017, has been as a Psychologist working with a Government Agency that assists Police Officers, Military Veterans with PTSD and other related mental health conditions.
