Dr. Caserta is a Washington native. She grew up in a small, rural community in Eastern Washington and understands the challenges and rewards of living in a community like ours. In particular she is passionate about stopping intergenerational patterns of dysfunction that hinder healthy childhood development. For Dr. Caserta, working with families to build resiliency and confidence is one of the most rewarding parts of her job. Dr. Caserta takes advantage of living in our area by frequent horseback rides and kayaking with her family. She and her husband stay busy keeping up the daily activities of their two school-aged children. She also enjoys training and doing agility with her dog. Dr. Caserta’s long-term dream is to start a horse therapy program for at-risk teens and kids with special health care needs.
