More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 5
State: VA

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.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

She’s always there!

Christy is wonderful and such a good listener. She always is able to relate concepts back to real world experiences. I appreciate her so much!

I've done Better Help counseling on and off for about 3 years. Christy has helped teach me what self worth is and find it. She also helped me process a lot of different emotions including toxic relationships, loss, and change. I really appreciate being able to write down my issues in real time on the better help app and then discussing what happened, how to process, and grow from it on the weekly call. She's helped me get through some BIG things. Thank you Christy!

I am so happy to have the opportunity to meet with Christy. I have been able to recognize tremendous self-growth as a result of working with her. She is kind, compassionate, and offers up options for approaching a situation. She has helped me build confidence in my decision-making, provided me with tools to work through feelings of being overwhelmed/anxious, and helped me to see my self-worth. I highly recommend working with Christy.

Christy is supportive and wonderful to talk to.

E.I.·Nov 10, 2020


Christy has been sooo helpful. She listens and remembers what I'm feeling one session to another. Most face to face therapist have to refer back to their documentation... Not get!

T.A.·Nov 07, 2020


Christy has been wonderful! She has truly created a safe space to talk and tackle issues. I’ve only met with her a few times so far and am already feeling uplifted and encouraged. I would highly recommend Christy and Better Help to anyone looking for a friendly and supportive counselor!

Christy has made life seem doable again. She listens to my concerns and helps me set goals for myself.

H.A.·Jul 21, 2020


In just a few sessions with Christy I am able to really reflect on my feelings and thoughts more consciously, something I don’t usually do. She’s extremely easy to talk to and never makes me feel like I am rambling on (which I’m sure I sometimes do). I always look forward to our sessions together and would definitely recommend her.

D.I.·Jun 07, 2020


I have nothing but good things to say about Christy and the support she has offered to me.

A.N.·May 28, 2020


I've dabbled in therapy before this, but it has rarely led to big 'aha' moments. In just two sessions with Christy, I've gotten more insights on my personality, relationships, and parenting style than I've ever been able to glean from other therapists or (a considerable number of) self-help books. Christy has the unique ability to pinpoint the issue clearly, be honest and direct about it, but at the same time be encouraging and supportive.

G.W.·May 12, 2020


She listens and gives very helpful advice when I'm just so overwhelmed I can't make sense of my feelings.

J.E.·May 02, 2020


I've really enjoyed my sessions with Christy. She's a great listener while also sharing her thoughts and perspective that are really helpful. She also offers ideas and suggestions that are thoughtful and realistic!

E.L.·Apr 27, 2020


Christy has been so positive and inspirational. I’m growing and getting so much support. She is like Oprah! Absolutely therapeutic and wise! I highly recommend her.

L.U.·Sep 21, 2018


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!

S.A.·Aug 22, 2018


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