Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Jay Vargas-Zachary, LCSW
I believe what makes my practice unique is my training and background as a Social Worker. My desire to Advocate, Educate and Empower my clients is what guides me. I tend to focus on the bio-psychosocial aspects of a problem, meaning I take a "person-in-environment" approach that involves a thorough consideration and investigation of the biological, psychological and social factors that may be affecting a person's functioning and well being.
I value your right to self-determination and will work closely with you to identify and clarify your goals. I will begin therapy where you are and move at a pace that you are comfortable with. This is not to say that there won't be times when I will challenge your thinking, offer new perspective and push for change, but I will always attempt to do so in a constructive, thoughtful and supportive manner.
As a therapist, I strive to be honest and open with all of my clients. I believe the best relationships are those built on trust, respect, and authenticity. I appreciate our diversity as human beings and embrace the opportunity to work with individuals from all walks of life-both similar and different from my own. Please contact me if you are interested in working together. I look forward to hearing from you.
