I'm a therapist, although I'm away from Argentina at present. I can point you in the right direction of an English speaking therapist, although I have to make the reservation that I don't know them personally and therefore can not comment on their practice.
I met Dr de la Rosa Alabaster on the internet, he seems pretty sound and said to have experience working with expats. He's got a website: http://www.consultapsi.com He speaks Spanish, but is very fluent in English and French.
Another place to try is Aigle. The director is very well-known internationally and I will feel comfortable recommending him. I've just found his details on the internet:

I am a native English-speaking psychotherapist based in Buenos Aires. I trained as a clinical psychologist in Melbourne, Australia and recently established a private practice here with a focus on providing psychotherapy for English-speaking expatriates. As expatriates are vulnerable to a number of changes in their mental and physical health, the types of problems that might arise or resurface include, but are not limited to:
• issues re existing relationships, or lack thereof
• anger and frustration
• addictive behaviour
• loss of identity and direction in life
• body image and eating issues
Please feel free to contact me with any queries you might have and I will be very pleased to discuss ways in which I might be able to help.
My contact details are:
Dr Eliza Sims Addison
Talcahuano 1294 – P.B. ‘B’ y ‘C’

I read an out of print book called "Bad Times in Buenos Aires" (it's about 12 years old and very worth the read. You might be able to find a copy at your local library). The book indicates that seeing a therapist is a status symbol and would indicated that the person seeing a therapist has money. I am just wondering if this is still the case. I wonder why so many people go to shrinks in Buenos Aires. It's such a happy place!
