David E. Briggs, LCPC            Owner, Briggs Therapy Group

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 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             Co-Owner, Briggs Therapy Group

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 also provide counseling for couples who are experiencing ongoing conflict, relationship problems, communication issues, lack of emotional connection or loss of intimacy.  With couples, I use a problem-solving approach that values honesty, respect, open communication and emphasis on individual and mutual strengths.

I have a particular interest in working with men and women experiencing young-adult and mid-life challenges including relationship issues, parenting concerns, personal setbacks, career changes, and difficulties with the emotional transition after  children leave the home.  In my work with clients, I use a blend of interpersonal/relational, cognitive/behavioral, and mindfulness-based counseling techniques. I have a Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and am a licensed clinical social worker.
