Christy Damrath

(LCSW)

About Me

My name is Christy Damrath and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia. I earned my BSW and MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University. Since 2012 I have worked with adult clients experiencing mental illnesses, first in a community based setting and then in an outpatient setting. I have worked with clients experiencing Bipolar Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Grief and Loss, ADD/ADHD, and Borderline Personality Disorder. I work to build a genuine rapport with clients from the beginning of the first session. I enjoy listening to clients, asking questions, and helping clients identify their goals and work towards reaching their potential. During sessions, I typically use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness approaches to assist clients with processing their thoughts and feelings and to practice the use of healthy coping skills. I look forward to meeting you and working together with you soon.

Christy has been extremely helpful and supportive. She has provided helpful worksheets and other 'homework' to help through some of the issues I am experiencing. She is very skilled and empathic!

Christy is great! She really listens, doesn't ask irrelevant questions, and doesn't beat around the bush.
