Kendra A. Vargas, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Deerfield
It's challenging to find a therapist, so take time and find someone who understands you and your needs/strengths to get results. I guide kids, teens, adults, parents, and families to tackle struggles head on, so you create your own success. When working with children and teens, it is crucial to be encouraging and engaging, giving tools needed for lifelong skills. Parents will learn strategies on how to help kids/teens continue progress at home. With adults, I empower you to learn effective ways to communicate, problem-solve, and find direction to push through the most difficult times.
Good therapists don't just "listen". I give strategies that work, from the beginning. If you're feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or need parenting help, I work with you to move forward. If your kids/teens have behavioral, emotional, or school challenges, I give tools to move forward. Call/email today.
Our offices are conveniently located in Deerfield, Skokie, Park Ridge, and Libertyville and we submit claims for all our clients- in-network or out-of-network. We are in-network providers for BCBS PPO and some HMOs and often many "out of network" coverage is comparable to in-network.
