Hi, I'm Christina Vargas, but you can refer to me as Christy! I'm a psychotherapist, but you might also call me a self-care/self-love advocate working towards eliminating the stigma of mental illness. I help people who long to feel emotionally safe and secure but are buried under mental obstacles. I guide them to commit to their journey of self-love, so that they can live their full potential and be the best version of themselves that they can be. I know from my own path to wellness and from helping many youth that investing in your mental health is so worth it and that you deserve to be happy.
Being a therapist is my passion. As everyone can benefit from support, I welcome all people who I may come across either in-office or via teletherapy regardless of background. However, my speciality, and a part of my work that I truly love, is engaging youth and families in play therapy/art therapy. Together, we can work as a team to provide support!
I believe that those who prioritize self-care and self-love will change the world. That's why I hope you schedule a consult with me today.
¡Hola, soy Christy Vargas! Soy una terapeuta, pero usted puede llamarme una defensora de autocuidado y amor propio. Mi pasión está eliminando el estigma en la sociedad sobre los transtornos mentales. Ayudo a las personas que quieren hablar y procesar situaciones que causan la angustia. Mi propósito es guiar a estas personas en lograr sus metas personales en el tratamiento. Ojalá que todos mis clientes continúen a recibir y proveer apoyo emocional a sus mismos y a otras personas también. Yo creo que ir a terapia y mejorar la salud mental vale la pena para todos.
Mi especialidad como terapeuta es trabajar con los jóvenes que tienen 3 a 17 años porque creo que los niños y los adolescentes tienen la potencial y el poder para influir a otras personas en una manera muy positiva mientras cambiar el mundo. Disfruto a trabajar con sus niños y su familia en proveer terapia a través de jugar y crear los artes para procesar.
Deseo que usted me considere en su búsqueda de una terapeuta porque a mi me encantaría trabajar juntos para guiar y apoyar su familia en priorizar la salud mental. La gente que practicar el amor propio va a cambiar el mundo. Entonces, espero que me llames hoy.
