Dr. Drinkman is a great counselor. She knows the right questions to ask and how to respond to your feelings. She gives you great tools to manage with. She even follows up with you later. Definitely recommend.

Dr. Drinkman is not only a talented counselor, but a very kind and wonderful person. We worked with video sessions weekly and messaging to conquer my driving, work and health anxiety. The tools she gave me will help me for the rest of my life. She is nothing short of a blessing to this community and world. Thank you Dr. Drinkman.

I’ve been working with Dr. Drinkman for just a few weeks, after changing counselors. I feel we’re a good therapeutic match! She kindly offered her support over the weekend, if needed, because she knew I was taking a potentially emotionally-charged trip. I didn’t take her up on her offer, but knew I could and that was very comforting. I’m looking forward to continue working with her.
