I have worked in the mental health field for most of my adult life. I have also been an emergency room registered nurse. I have seen the needs of all kinds of people in our communities. I became a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner because I want to meet the needs of people that suffer from mood instability, depression, anxiety, substance abuse and ADHD. This is why I chose Telemedicine to deliver services. Too many people in rural communities don't have access. Even people in cities don't have enough access. Telemedicine is easy and confidential. No more going to sit in a waiting room. I AM ABLE TO SEE ANY TEXAS RESIDENT!
