Brittany DeFiore, LCSW

   I am a social worker with a passion for recovery and story-telling. I have enjoyed my past experiences working with transitional aged youth, children, and individuals experiencing first-time psychosis. In addition to my work with Davis Sound Mind, I work at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office providing crisis response and de-escalation in active mental health calls for service. I enjoy working with first responders and law enforcement in providing critical incident stress management and fostering mental health wellness in emergency situations. My approach to the therapeutic process is one of patience, empathy, and understanding to create a safe and positive environment for healing with my clients. I utilize a mixed approach to therapy, employing techniques from narrative, CBT, and humanistic therapy to help clients understand and make sense of their thoughts and their worldview.

   In my free time, I can be found snuggled on the couch with my three cats, Lucy, Ashe, and Cocoa, or at a park with my dog, Lola. One of my favorite ways to de-stress and relax is by creating art using my iPad and Procreate or acrylic paints. I find art to be a really personal and safe way to express yourself when words aren’t enough to describe the lives we live. Mental health has always been a part of my personal journey and creating a career and livelihood has provided me the invaluable opportunity to grow alongside my clients as we learn from each other.
