Professional statement

Gabriel is a Board Certified Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP-BC) with over 14 years of clinical nursing experience. He received his Bachelor’s in Nursing from the University of Texas at Arlington and my Master’s in Nursing from Walden University. As a psychiatric and mental health nurse practitioner, the most significant aspect of his career is to provide a holistic healing presence. Holistic healing presence is being consciously and compassionately in the present moment with his clients, acknowledging and affirming their prospect for wholeness wherever stage of healing or recovery process they are in.

He found trusting and collaborative partnerships with his clients invaluable, which has helped him in creating a lasting professional therapeutic relationship needed to overcome fears, reservations, and stigmatization often associated with psychiatric and mental health illnesses. He specializes in the assessment and treatment of mental illness via psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic interventions. He is a firm believer that mental health treatment yields more effective outcomes when it is multifaceted.

Medications can be very efficacious for some people, but they are not for everyone. So, during the course of the treatment, he will often collaborate with other multidiscipline providers or recommend various treatment modalities tailored toward achieving individualized goals.


Message to clients

I provide HIPAA-compliant telehealth initial assessment and ongoing medication management to adolescents, adults, and geriatrics with varying psychiatric illnesses in the privacy and comfort of their homes, by applying an evidence-based, patient-centered, and holistic approach with the aim to restore wellness to my patients.

There is no "one size fits all" in the care of patients with mental and behavioral illnesses, and seeking help is the first step in the healing process. So I partner with my patients to create an individualized treatment plan with measurable goals. My services respect patients' race, gender, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation.
