My name is Christina Caro and I am a licensed clinical psychologist practicing in Mammoth Lakes and Bishop, California. I have over 18 years of clinical experience as a psychologist and over 20 years experience in organizational effectiveness.
I strive to create a safe space for my clients where you can freely explore your feelings, thoughts, fears, hopes, and patterns that are impacting your life. In addition to gaining insight into unconscious patterns, behaviors, and emotions, I believe that psychotherapy should help patients gain personal mastery and feel more confident in implementing change. You will have an opportunity to learn new skills, identify new choices, and remove barriers to your success.
The goal is to provide both short-term strategies to alleviate immediate suffering and long-term skills to build mastery in your life.
I do this by meeting you exactly where you are and providing you with guidance, empathy, the latest research, tools, and strategies.
