"I am an enthusiastic advocate of a conjoint use of counseling and medical treatment..."
I am a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, bilingual English and Spanish. I recently moved to Washington from Miami, Florida where I lived for 21 years. I earned my undergraduate degree in nursing at Miami Dade College and worked as a Registered Nurse in oncology, emergency room and urgent care. I obtained a Master of Science in Nursing at Florida International University and have been working as a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner for the past few years.
During my free time, the outdoors is my playground. I like running, hiking, snowshoeing and kayaking. Traveling to new cities and discovering good restaurants are also enjoyable activities for me.
I enjoy working with all age groups and my education and training allows me to treat clients throughout their entire lifespan. I am an enthusiastic advocate of a conjoint use of counseling and medical treatment with clients. My approach to treat depression and anxiety is not only through the use of medications, but also with complementary health approaches such as dietary changes and nutrition, increased physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management and therapy; which have long lasting positive effects on clients physical and mental health.
The treatment of individuals with bipolar is one of my favorite areas in clinical work. I do use a conservative approach when applicable to manage this condition. Having frequent follow ups to have the clients involved in their care as well to ensure symptoms are well managed.
ADHD treatment and management is another area that I am skilled and knowledgeable in treating. It’s very rewarding to see clients that were previously struggling at school, work or life in general respond positively to treatment and having an improved quality of life.
I look forward to meeting with you to support, help manage and resolve any mental health issues that you are currently facing.
