Dr. Watlington & Associates, also known as Christina Watlington PhD, was formed in 2011 as a solo private practice. In 2017, Dr. Watlington transitioned to a group practice in order to harness the mental health expertise of various practitioners and have a greater impact in Delaware. The practitioners are experienced psychologists, social workers and counselors with specialities in individual, child, adolescent and adult therapies.
With offices in Wilmington/Newark, DE and Middletown DE., the practitioners at Dr. Watlington & Associates provide client outpatient services and community-based services that are:
- Trauma-informed: We understand, recognize, and respond to the effects of all types of trauma.
- Evidence-based: We incorporate best available research evidence; client’s needs, values, and preferences; practitioner wisdom; and theory into the clinical decision-making process.
- Culturally-sensitive: We appreciate the dignity and worth of each person we encounter. We actively seek to:
- moves past cultural stereotypes and biases (e.g. based on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, religion, gender-identity, geography, etc.)
- offer access to gender responsive services
- leverage the healing value of traditional cultural practices
The mission of Dr. Watlington & Associates is to improve the quality of life for children, adults, families, and organizations by providing high quality services.
