Cintia Garcia Block
I was born in Argentina, and raised in different parts of Africa. I studied to become a psychologist in Argentina, and in 2006 I became a Licensed Psychologist in my country of origin. A few years later I moved to Canada and enrolled in Saint Paul University where I obtained a Master in Counselling and Spirituality (2015), specializing in Couple’s Counselling. I am currently under supervision in working with families in order to become a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.
I am a firm believer that healthy families make healthy societies, and am passionate about human relationships. My international background has been an asset for my work with people, and helped me understand the role culture and families play in human behaviour, particularly when faced with a problem. I have clinical experience in a variety of different settings, both locally and abroad. I am comfortable in providing counselling both in English and Spanish.

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Counselling and Spirituality, with dual specializations in Individual, as well as in Couple & Family Therapy, from the Saint Paul University School of Counselling, Psychotherapy, and Spirituality in Ottawa, Ontario. I also hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree, where I double majored in both Psychology, as well as Justice and Public Policy from the University of Guelph, Ontario. I am a member of The Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists, and Psychotherapists, and future member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).
As a clinician, I take an insight-based approach to therapy. When we are able to reach deeper insight into the mind we inhabit, we are able to identify emerging patterns regarding particular ways we approach and manage interactions, relationships, emotions, and thoughts. We may sometimes find ourselves struggling to discover what we really want, our deepest hungers, what we fear, why we act the way that we do, or why we can become overwhelmed by certain feelings. I believe that our therapeutic journey will be a pursuit of self-knowledge, where you and I will work together to foster a profound, intrinsic acceptance and understanding of how you have developed into the unique person that you are, how you came to view yourself and the world around you in the way that you do, and of the complexities surrounding our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
