Heather Vargo began her career as a licensed psychotherapist in 1995. After nearly 10 years working for large agencies with ridiculous caseloads, Heather started her private practice Life Guidance Associates where she keeps her practice small by design, handling every phone call, text or email personally. Furthermore, Heather continues to accept insurance because she believes “quality, affordable, mental-healthcare should be affordable and accessible to anyone who needs it” and offers a sliding scale for those who do not have insurance or mental-health benefits.
With nearly 25 years of psychotherapy experience, Heather Vargo, LCSW, specializes in treating individuals, couples & teens with issues related to Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Problems, Stress, Conflict Avoidance, Communication/Conflict Resolution, Self-Esteem/Self-Worth, Grief/Loss, and other life challenges. Additionally, Heather has experience in treating those affected by infidelity, addiction and special needs.
Heather has been married for over 17 years and has two young sons, ages 15 & 13.
When asked “what’s been your favorite part of being a therapist?” Heather’s reply is “I love that my patients get better!” ” I feel so blessed and privileged to help someone navigate their way through difficult and often painful life experiences. I never tire of seeing their hard earned growth and progress and ultimately HEAL.”
