Professional statement

Jason Vastardis is a Licensed Professional Counselor who lives and works in Pennsylvania. He has experience in a variety of fields including community mental health, addiction treatment centers, and insurance based mental health centers. He was recently Director of Operations at LifeStance (formerly known as Delaware County Professional Services), supporting therapists in daily management.

Jason recently started his own private practice in 2021 to return back to his real passion: Therapy. He supports a wide range of clients addressing issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, addiction, and relationship stress. He uses an eclectic approach that borrows from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Transpersonal Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Existential Therapy and Relational Therapy.

Jason's strengths are his ability to work with individuals based off of their needs, and to create unique therapeutic experiences from person to person. He prides himself on the idea that no two sessions are the same, and that each individual co-creates a unique process of healing, exploration and change during the sessions.


Message to clients

Therapy is a process of becoming your best self. Building on your strengths while supporting and addressing your vulnerabilities. Therapy is not about changing into someone else, but rather removing the obstacles that have prevented you from achieving your potential. A place where you can tap into vast resources that may have been lost through the struggles in life. Therapy is a reminder of how much power we have to create effective change in our lives, on our terms.

My goal is to create the environment that allows you to feel empowered to look within and decide the kind of person you want to become. To create new narratives about your life story and not allow other people's beliefs, opinions and pain to prevent you from being happy and healthy. To reject the complacency of "good enough" when it comes to your dreams and desires. To challenge new ways of envisioning yourself and your role in our world. I offer free 15 minute consultations to give you a chance to see what I can offer with no risk. Please do not hesitate to reach out, and let today be the first day of your new self.
