Provider type: Nurse Practitioner
I am a Board-Certified Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. I completed my studies as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Midwestern State University.
I have over 14 years of training and experience treating patients with psychiatric disorders across the lifespan and across practice settings from Inpatient Clinical Psychiatry to Home Health Psychiatry as well as the Residential Treatment Center for substance abuse. I have served this special population in different roles of staff, management, and quality. My background includes long-term care, acute medical care, pediatric and adult home health, and acute and outpatient hemodialysis.
I was raised in Brownsville, TX, and started my nursing career as a teen working as a Certified Nurse Assistant since I have been dedicated to providing care to others with the ultimate goal of helping clients achieve their health goals by providing holistic and culturally sensitive care. I am a strong patient advocate and encourage patients to have autonomy in their care by participating in treatment planning.
