Go to Citra>Preferences>Graphics>Advanced Tab and set the Graphics API to Vulkan. macOS deprecated their OpenGL drivers, so they cannot use it.

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Please enable the Vsync option if you are experiencing screen tearing.
  • You have cheats enabled. This might cause weird behaviour or crashes. Please disable them and retest if your game is experiencing bugs or crashes.

Disable your cheat codes, then restart the emulation. Now try your game again and see if the issue persists.
