Gundersen St. Joseph’s grows with new behavioral health provider

Gundersen St. Joseph’s grows with new behavioral health provider
Monday, October 26, 2020

Christina Brooks, LCSW

Gundersen St. Joseph's welcomes behavioral health provider Christina Brooks, LCSW, to its team.

Brooks, who was born in the former Gundersen St. Joseph's Hospital, returns to the Hillsboro area. She lived and worked in rural communities for most of her career, helping children and families facing neglect, abuse and other adverse life experiences.

Brooks started her career working in the child welfare system and realized there were limited mental health resources available for children living in rural communities.

"I have always been driven to provide services where they are needed and to support individuals where they are at," she said.

Brooks earned her master's degree from UW Madison's School of Social Work and is trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Brainspotting. She tailors her therapy sessions to the needs of the individual, utilizing play, mindfulness and other modalities.

"I enjoy assisting individuals in exploring their strengths and expanding their ability to overcome life's challenges," she said. "Every individual has the capacity to find light in the midst of their personal struggles, but sometimes they need a little support moving the clouds."

Brooks joins Jennifer Fiegel-Newlon, NP, and Alyssa Sherwood, MSW, in providing behavioral health services at Gundersen St. Joseph's Clinic. For more information or to make an appointment, call (608) 489-8280.
