Heather Vargo's bio

This content was provided by Heather Vargo "As the owner of Life Guidance Associates, it is my passion to provide the highest quality of psychotherapy services to adults, couples and teens who are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, conflict, communication, decision making and much more. I believe a "good fit" between therapist and client is crucial. Through my insight oriented approach and interactive style together we can identify and address that which brings you to therapy so that you may have a better quality of life and more fulfilling relationships."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Heather Vargo "  As a psychotherapist for 23 years (half my life!) Ive come to believe a good "fit" between patient and therapist is key. It's through this unique relationship that growth and change are possible. My style is 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 swings, depression, anxiety, stress, anger, family conflict/relationship issues, communication problems, decision making difficulty, sepetation/divorce, ADHD, LGBQ relationships and parenting issues. I also have extensive experience and enjoy working with those AFFECTED by alchoholism, mental health issues, trauma, infidelity, infertility and aging parents.  I firmly believe quality mental health care should be accessible and affordable for everyone so I continue to accept insurance. I've been practicing since 1995 and opened my private practice in 2003. "

Heather is professional, kind and easy to talk to. She offers valuable advice and counseling that leads to positive change. I've been seeing her for nearly two years and have been able to cut way back on the frequency of my appointments due to the help that she's provided.
