As a therapist for over 20 years it is my passion to provide the highest quality of psychotherapy. I accept insurance because I believe therapy should be accessible and affordable. My Style of doing therapy is collaborative and interactive. I practice primarily insight oriented and psychodynamic models with a solution focused approach. I firmly believe a "good fit' between patient and therapist is a crucial component to a patient's long term success. My objective is to facilitate my patients in not only identifying what they want to work on in therapy but effectively address these issues at the root cause so they can ultimately improve their quality of life, feel more fulfilled and have healthier relationships.

More Info About My Practice

Life Guidance Associates is a private psychotherapy practice, founded by Heather L. Vargo LCSW in 2003. After a decade of experience working for large counseling agencies where patients were treated more like a number then a person, Heather wanted to provide a more compassionate approach for her patients by providing a much more personal experience.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

What I love about being a therapist is seeing my patients get better! I feel so fortunate to be a part of the process of helping someone through the depths of despair, the weight of stressors or the mist of conflict cope, heal, and grow then be able to move forward with an improved confidence and success. Whether it's a couple, adult or teen, I'm love what I do. Regardless how long someone stays in therapy I feel privileged to have an opportunity to make a difference in their lives.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

I can't keep track of all the times I had a patient say they tried therapy in the past but didn't find it helpful or worse outright negative . I believe people want an active listener with a fresh perspective, not a passive listener with little to no input. Most of my patients don't want to be in therapy indefinitely. This is why I employ a more solution focused approach where my patients can get the most out of each session.
