As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Christy Brinkmann works with patients age six years and older to support their health and well-being through one-on-one counseling and connection to local resources.
“When I went to school originally, I wanted to travel the world and provide services to underserved nations,” said Christy. “Early in my career, I discovered that my true passion and purpose was being here, in my community, where I could help with everyday challenges.”
Christy has over 20 years of experience working with patients dealing with depression, stress, anxiety, grief, and life transitions. She loves learning about her patients’ life history, helping them find their purpose, and witnessing the strength they bring to the process.
She offers in-person clinic visits and telehealth (virtual) meetings.
