If you are feeling disconnected, helpless, or stuck, I can assist you in changing the patterns and ways of relating which might be holding you back. By prioritizing your sense of safety, welcoming heavy emotions, and guiding you to meet/heal unknown parts of yourself or your partner, you can gain freedom from the patterns in which you feel trapped. I work with individuals and couples, supporting them to understand the ways they manage stress through retreating inward and shutting down, or turning outwards for connection and validation. From there, I help clients to better understand who they are and what they need.

Specifically, I have worked with adults, adolescents, and children diagnosed with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, and with those struggling with substance abuse. I have also had the privilege of serving individuals with intellectual disabilities and developmental delays in both private, in-home, and educational settings.

I have always been a helper. In the first grade my compassion got me into trouble for reassuring a classmate that the teacher wouldn't mind if he removed the tape over his mouth to eat his recess snack. Needless to say, she minded. In high school I was the "go to" person for friends who were having all sorts of relationship problems. This pattern continued through college. I guess it is no surprise that I now help people solve their problems for a living.

Hello my name is Firas and I am a student therapist at Vanguard Therapy. I understand that people come to therapy for a wide variety of reasons and those same people have different expectations when it comes to the therapeutic process and its outcomes, which is great! Where you and I can begin is by me stating my dedication to offering a completely open and non-judgmental space in therapy which, I hope, puts you at ease. I am currently working towards earning my M.Ed in clinical mental health counseling from George Mason University. In my experience, I have worked with children, teens, and adults.

If you are here you're looking for a therapist and possibly feeling overwhelmed. Life sometimes feels difficult to manage and reaching out is the first step. In my general practice, I see families, couples, teens and children, and offer parenting guidance. Depression, anxiety , and other mental health/behavioral issues impact life functioning in all areas (school, work, relationships with family, peers and partners) and can be confusing to manage as the symptoms look so different in each individual. Working together we will discuss your goals and determine your needs to effectively manage your challenges.

All great changes are preceded by chaos. - Deepak Chopra....... In such uncertain times, it is common to feel confused, disorganized and uncertain about the future. Think back to a time in your life when change was inevitable, though difficult what was the silver lining? What did you learn? How did you grow? and How can you compare this to your current disposition? While we face so much adversity and ambiguity, it is ok to feel out of control. As a Resident in Counseling, I am dedicated to helping individuals and families create the new norm through the use of cognitive behavioral techniques and solutions.

Do you long for the days when you and your partner seemed happy and not every conversation left you feeling angry, sad, or misunderstood? Do you feel like you are banging your head against a wall having the same old fight? It can be very painful when the relationship you care the most about is not working or is causing you pain. I am certified in EFT, Emotionally Focused Therapy. Many therapists say they work with couples but when your relationship is struggling you deserve to work with someone who has experience and training with a solid, well researched approach that provides a plan to help you.

What type of Fairfax mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Fairfax?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
