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.

Children are very resilient and they are often aware of the environment around them much more than adults often understand. I believe in empowering children through highlighting their strengths and celebrating the small (or large) victories with them. I seek to provide clients with a space where they can experience age-appropriate independence, growth, and hope.

I recognize therapy varies from person to person, therefore, I utilize a variety of person-centered modalities through a culturally competent lens.
Change is inevitable and it can be difficult to embrace these persistent ups and downs while learning to thrive on this roller coaster of transition. Sometimes we need a little help navigating ways in managing these challenging emotions. Hence, I take a warm, empathetic, and “real” approach to therapy. I believe maintaining a personable, professional relationship helps build a strong therapeutic alliance with my clients. I've found that creating a safe non-judgemental space has empowered my clients to regain control of their lives. My clients come from all walks of life. Each with their own unique experiences.
