Caitlin Bishop is a mental health therapist at La Clinica’s school-based health center at Talent Middle School.
A licensed clinical social worker, she earned her master’s degree in social work from Chico State University, where she focused on rural mental health and systemic economic inequality. She attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland and earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology and anthropology, with a minor in gender and sexuality studies.
Caitlin was born and raised in Northern California and lived around the Pacific Northwest and internationally before settling in the Rogue Valley. She and her partner are kept busy raising a wild-spirited toddler, a hyperactive rescue dog, a sweet-natured cat, a flock of backyard hens, and a hive of honey bees. In her “free time” Caitlin enjoys exploring rivers, woods, and mountains for paddling, swimming, hiking, backpacking, skiing, running, and harvesting wild plants to craft preserves, meads, tinctures, and healing salves. She is committed to social and economic justice issues and environmental stewardship.
Caitlin was attracted to La Clinica for its commitment to caring for individuals while addressing broader social issues. She is committed to helping children deal with stress and trauma so that they can create a positive sense of self and build meaningful, flourishing relationships with others.”
