About Me

Hi! I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I completed my academic work at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and my residency with Springfield Psychological in PA. Over the past four years, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults to address various challenges, concerns, and personal goals. I understand the importance of establishing a strong relationship with each individual client in order to build trust and security when discussing sensitive or personal concerns. Theoretically, my work is based off a cognitive behavioral approach along with mindfulness based strategies. I also emphasize holistic self-care to help clients feel their best while working towards their goals. I look forward to speaking with you!

Dr. Drinkwine has been wonderful. She is patient and kind. She knows exactly what I am trying to say even when I can’t always articulate it myself. She has helped me work through my problems and has taught me countless skills to help me succeed on my own far into the future.

Dr. Drinkwine has helped me address a great deal of triggers that usually can cause a cycle of anxiety for me. I have been seeing her for a few weeks now and I really enjoy our sessions together. She has given me worksheets and homework which really helps. Each session has allowed me to develop better coping strategies to use for when I am feeling anxious. She is a great support. I highly recommend.

Although it is way too soon for me to tell, from the moment we started our first session I can tell that my Dr. would absolutely work for me. She is very understanding and i felt that we connected immediately and I'm looking forward to working together in the future.
