Dr. Christina Watlington

(PhD)

About Me

Welcome to my page! I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and two years of experience working as a certified life coach. I love what I do- helping others to achieve their goals by making meaningful changes in their lives. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, PTSD, stress, depression, low self-esteem, adjustment concerns, and career challenges.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, dignity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, mindfulness-based and culturally sensitive interventions. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to provide you with support, encouragement and important tools to transform your life.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Watlington is very compassionate. She’s completely non-judgmental and I felt very comfortable opening up about everything. She’s great at really reflecting back on what she’s hearing from you and helping you see the exits out of the dark areas. She’s very responsive and a pleasure to work with. I had a very positive experience! Will definitely return to work with her in the future.
