I firmly believe that quality care should be accessible to everyone, which is why I joined the MedNorth team in 2018. I have spent half my life in Wilmington and being able to serve my community is a pleasure and privilege. Being a part of the Integrated Behavioral health Team allows me to best serve people through a collaborative and patient-centered approach. I enjoy working with families from all ages, backgrounds, and life experiences. I am a native Spanish speaker and am able to provide therapy in both Spanish and English.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and cat (Baron)! I also like visiting new places, trying new things, eating new foods, and learning about different cultures.
