Hello! I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of Massachusetts, and I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders & disordered eating, body image issues, anxiety, and sexual trauma. I received my master’s degree in counseling psychology from Boston College, and completed my clinical internship working with survivors of sexual assault.
I have previously worked as the Lead Adolescent Clinician at an eating disorder treatment center in various levels of care (residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient). Currently, I provide outpatient therapy for adolescents, young adults, and families at my private practice offices located in Medway, MA & Brookline, MA, as well as virtually (i.e. videochat) where appropriate. You can learn more about my treatment approach here.
I am passionate about promoting healthy body image, understanding the impact of social media on self-esteem, and encouraging parent education in the treatment of eating disorders and other mental health issues. In my free time, I enjoy reading, blogging, hiking, and spending time with my dog (who often accompanies me to work!).
I can be contacted at EVargasLMHC@gmail.com with questions, comments, or to inquire about scheduling an appointment. For more information, please see my Psychology Today profile.
