About me

Alan Cyr provides a friendly, nonjudgmental, and practical approach to therapy. He uses an integrative approach but is heavily influenced by rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT). He has experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. His areas of expertise include autism spectrum disorder, addiction recovery, multiple diagnoses, and LGBTQIA issues.

Alan began my professional career working in secondary education. After several years working in this field, he realized he most enjoyed the opportunity to work with individuals and groups seeking personal growth and change. He decided to go to graduate school for counseling psychology, doing his practicum work in two group homes for adolescents. After graduation, while working towards licensure, Alan then worked at a long-term, residential treatment facility for adults with chronic substance abuse challenges. This experience was invaluable, as it allowed Alan to become familiar with treating the many underlying and co-occurring conditions that contribute to substance dependence. Alan has been working in private practice since 2020 and he continues to work with children, adolescents, and adults through both individual and group therapy.

Alan has a collaborative style when working with clients. After enough information is gathered (usually over 2-3 sessions), a treatment plan will be drafted, incorporating evidence-based interventions whenever possible. This will also include a preliminary estimate of the recommended number of sessions. Alan appreciates clients providing input and feedback at each step of the process. He encourages practicing healthy, new behaviors as homework for those clients who are open to this. Alan especially enjoys working with people from all different backgrounds, life experiences, and challenges.

Since graduating with my MA in counseling psychology with a specialty in marriage and family counseling, Alan took three more graduate classes and has engaged in dozens of hours of continuing education courses, both online and in person. Most recently, Alan attended the Florida Mental Health Counselors Association Annual Conference in 2024 where he was able to attend workshops from leading experts in the field of psychotherapy. Alan is also an avid reader and stays up to date on current research in counseling psychology.
