Cynthia Briere, LCSW
Welcome, my name is Cynthia Briere, LCSW. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (SW15255) in Florida. With an open heart and mind, I work with people from all walks of life. My clients will receive counseling with dignity, respect, and compassion. During counseling, there may be times where a therapist may need to identify possible self-sabotaging thoughts or behaviors. I will discuss this with kindness and respect. I will create a space where you feel comfortable and safe to explore all that makes you unique. In counseling, you will identify what is holding you back. Outside of sessions, you will practice the skills to make changes so you can live the life that you desire.
Previously, I have worked in outpatient counseling, and substance abuse treatment centers, co-facilitating groups for impaired professionals. I have also provided counseling in correctional facilities and integrated community healthcare programs in Florida and Tennessee.
My passion is helping people to begin to live the life that they want with freedom from emotional pain. You will identify what goals you feel are most important to work on, develop a plan to break down the barriers, and to achieve those goals so you can begin to heal. On your journey, my role is one of support as you work on becoming the person you want to be and live the life you desire. You may be seeking to move forward with a greater sense of lightness and ease. I look forward to undertaking this grand adventure together! I have a history of working with clients with complex trauma and uses a combination of CBT and EMDR. I have provided counseling to clients that have experienced complex trauma by incorporating a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I will also incorporate Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) into counseling sessions with clients.
Some questions to ask yourself about counseling: Are you ready to bring more peace and happiness into your life? Are you prepared to work through and finally let go of past traumatic experiences? Maybe you want to connect with your spirituality on a deeper level? I have much experience working with older adults as they transition through the new chapters of their lives. I am here to help you reignite your spark and find your passion! I am here to support you as you learn to fully accept and love yourself and become your own best friend.
