Announcement icon I am currently providing online, video and phone sessions for clients via Zoom and FaceTime as well as electronic scheduling.
As owner of Life Guidance Assoc. and LCSW for over 25yrs. I've learned that a "good fit" between therapist and patient is key to their success. I consider myself "Trauma Informed" with a wealth of knowledge that decades of experience and an insatiable curiosity offers. I want therapy to be a collaborative experience for my patients. Together we will uncover underlying issues behind years of interpersonal conflict, unhealthy/maladaptive coping skills/behaviors such as self sabotoge, feelings of helplessness/powerlessness, anxiety, fear, despair, conflict avoidance, unfulfilled potential and more. It takes time but you can heal <3
I utilize integrative therapy approaches and assessment skills to help my patients quickly get to the core of long-standing beliefs and behaviors that are not serving them well. This new insight and increased self-awareness allows my patients to identify and explore these patterns and/or coping strategies from a fresh perspective.
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.
