About

David E. Briggs

David E. Briggs, LCPC

I am a licensed psychotherapist with a masters degree in clinical professional psychology from Roosevelt University.  I serve a wide range of clients from diverse backgrounds and work from a perspective that values the nuances in human relationships and the often complex interplay between individuals and their environment. My style is warm and collaborative and I like to create a therapeutic environment in which clients can develop insight into their personal experience and design a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I specialize in with working individuals, couples and families in crisis, especially those experiencing ongoing interpersonal conflict.  I have extensive training and experience working with men and women struggling with grief, depression, anxiety, anger, addiction, transitions or painful life experiences.  I also have comprehensive training and experience working with a wide range of issues faced by pre-teens, adolescents and young adults. 

Prior to my becoming a therapist I had a 23-year career in the cable television industry where I worked in sales and marketing, management and program content development.   This experience further informs my work with clients, allowing me to draw upon a lifetime of rich, diverse and practical experience and offer a unique and mature perspective that clients often find useful. 

 

Jennifer Briggs, LCSW

 

I provide counseling for adults struggling with difficult life transitions, relationship problems, parenting challenges, chronic health issues, depression, anxiety, and grief and loss. I use a highly empathic approach to assist clients in identifying the patterns that cause them difficulty and help them develop insight and strategies to improve confidence, and engage in relationships more effectively. For clients suffering from grief or loss, I offer help in managing difficult emotions, reducing feelings of isolation and help build on strengths to cope and move forward.

I have a particular interest in working with women experiencing mid-life challenges including relationship issues, parenting concerns, career changes, and difficulties transitioning to an “empty nest.” In my work with clients, I use a blend of interpersonal/relational, cognitive/behavioral, and mindfulness-based counseling techniques.
