Dónde ejerzo mi práctica médica
Acerca de mí
I was born in Michoacan, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States in the early 1980s. From the time I was 12, I and my 4 siblings were raised by a single parent, our mother. My family background is embodied in poverty, teen parents, trauma, and illiteracy. I was raised working and living in migrant camps and was the first in my family to obtain a higher education. While I had little to no personal supports, I had a strong resiliency, which contributed to my succes. This resiliency, coupled with the support and encouragement of select high school teachers, propelled me into higher education. I received my bachelor's and master's degrees from Portland State University, where I trained in psychology and counselor education. I have extensive experience working in the crisis field. I have a passion for helping individuals self-actualize to be the most effective in their lives. I also have a passion for and value health and lifelong learning. My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
My treatment approach is tailored to each individual’s concerns. I strongly believe that through exploration of self and mindfulness, all persons have the capacity to manage life’s challenges. I work with primary care patients focusing on brief interventions and eliciting behavior change for any condition that is affecting their health and well-being. I also enjoy the often fast-paced environment and the holistic, team-based approach of working in primary care.

Cómo vivo bien
As a youth, I developed a passion for health and fitness. I have enjoyed being a group fitness instructor for a variety of fitness classes. Attending to my physical and mental health and spending time with my family helps me thrive. I am the mother of a son and 2 daughters, and in early 2019 we welcomed a shitzu-bichon puppy. We live a busy and healthy lifestyle of sports, leisure activity, music, cooking, and travel.
