You may sometimes catch me on the radio on El Paso’s NPR station, KTEP 88.5 FM, talking about mental health or answering listener questions.
I speak four languages and love traveling, reading, and watching the sunsets over our beautiful El Paso Franklin mountains!
My husband and I enjoy spending time with our kids by playing outside, exercising for good health, and trying new foods.
The most common health issues I treat are: depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, bipolar, OCD, behavioral problems, learning problems, and schizophrenia. I also specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults who have experienced trauma, or have a history of abuse.
Kids are not just little adults. They need extra special care and understanding!
