Heather Vargo's bio

This content was provided by Heather Vargo "As the founder and owner of Life Guidance Associates, it is my passion to provide the highest quality of psychotherapy services to adults, couples and teens who struggle with depression, anxiety, stress, conflict, communication, decision making and much more. I firmly believe a "good fit" between therapist and client is crucial. It is through this unique relationship real growth and change can begin. With my insight oriented approach and interactive style together my patients and I quickly identify that which is bringing them to therapy, develop goals and/or objectives for treatment and get to work effectively addressing, improving and ultimately resolving them. As a result my patients get the most out of every session and go on to improve their quality of life and enjoy more fulfilling relationships."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Heather Vargo "  As a psychotherapist for 23 years (half my life!) I've come to believe a good "fit" between therapist and patient is key.  It's through this unique relationship that growth and change are possible. My style tends to be more insight oriented and I have what would be considered a more direct approach. My "expertise" is in treating Adults, couples and teens (16 and over) who struggle with mood instability, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, interpersonal and/or relationship conflict, communication issues, decision making difficulty, separation/divorce and parenting issues. LGBQ friendly, I also have extensive experience and enjoy working with those AFFECTED by addiction, emotional abuse/neglect, trauma, infidelity, infertility, loss, children with special needs and aging parents.  My background is in clinical social work and I truely believe quality mental healthcare should be affordable and availabile to anyone who wants it which is why I still accept insurance.  "
