Benita Rullo

Psychologist

Hey there, I'm Benita, and I'm glad you stopped by. If you're on the lookout for a neurodiversity assessment that digs into your authentic self and helps you navigate the neurotypical world, you're in the right place.

My focus centres on positive self-discovery and empowering you to fully embrace who you are. Imagine a space where you can be yourself without any pretence, and I'm here to accommodate your preferences, be it sensory or movement-related.

I am truly passionate about the neurodivergent community and am dedicated to ensuring that all clients feel acknowledged, validated, and appreciated for who they are. I believe in creating a safe and affirming space where you can truly be yourself, unmasking your vulnerabilities and embracing your unique experiences in a world that often fails to understand. My mission is to empower people to embrace their uniqueness and find strength in their differences.

Let's make this more than a psychologist-client thing; let's make it a real connection. I can't wait to chat with you!

More about Benita

Home state: SA

My eye sparkles and SpIns (special interests) include:

  • The Beach - I really love the beach and water. I spend the majority of my spare time by the beach, either swimming, walking, or sitting by the beach watching the sunset.

  • Food - I would consider myself to be a big foodie. I love all things food, and enjoy spending my time researching and wining and dining at the newest restaurants. 

  • Singing/Music - I am constantly keeping up to date with my Spotify playlists and you will often find me signing and dancing around the house in my spare time.

  • Fashion - I love all things fashion-related. I am constantly keeping up with the latest trends and spending majority of my wage on new clothes. 

  • Crime Documentaries - I spend a lot of my spare time binge watching and researching crime documentaries/stories, and often end up freaking myself out. 

Here are 3 things I believe with all my heart to be true:

  • 1. Neurodivergent people deserve to be seen and heard and not marginalised or forced to fit into a neurotypical society.
    2. Manifestation is the bridge between imagination and reality. 
    3. There is nothing more powerful than the power of your mind.
