Announcement icon I am currently providing online, video and phone sessions for clients via Zoom and FaceTime as well as electronic scheduling.
I started Life Guidance Associates in 2003 after many years working for a large, for-profit agency, where patients were treated in-personally if not unethically. It became my passion to provide high quality psychotherapy services to adults, couples and older teens. With 25 years experience, I've learned a "good fit" between therapist and patient crucial to their success. I offer my patients expert therapeutic guidance, empathy, support and ACTIVE listening in a safe place. In therapy we will develop goals, explore underlying issues, maladaptive behaviors and/or defenses that impair your quality of life and relationship fulfillment.
I utilize integrative therapy approaches and assessment skills to help my patients quickly get to the core of long-standing patterns and behaviors that are no longer serving them well. This fresh insight and self-awareness allows them to identify and address that which they wish to work on thereby improving their quality of life and relationships.
Heather Vargo LCSW has practiced as a licensed therapist since 1995. After a decade working for large managed care providers she opened her practice, Life Guidance Associates. LGA remains a SMALL private practice by design so that Heather can ensure the highest quality of client services and handles her patients personally, with compassion and respect.
