Maria also works adults (favorite: young adults!) with all diagnoses. 

She has provided pro-bono asylum evaluations, and has worked in the community with the undocumented population for several years. She currently volunteers with the IRC to provide asylum evaluations and to guide students through the process of supporting this community.

Student PMHNP

Maria accepts 1-2 students per semester for precepting within her home. Students are required to live in Arizona and commute to the practice site daily, and are given a variety of cases including ones with strong complexities to follow throughout their rotation. Students are expected to thoroughly research cases, provide evaluations, education, and to see all ages. This is an intensive and hands on rotation designed to make you a safe, empathetic and competent prescriber. We also require students to complete at least one asylum evaluation. ​

Since you will be in my home and representing my practice, I would like to make sure our values align -- also considering you will be around my biracial daughter. 


* Anti-racist values 

* Values of social justice 

* Understanding health disparities

* Love of dogs

* Ability to lose the "stiff professionalism" we are forced to learn and be open-minded 

* Commitment to working with the underserved 

* Vaccinated + respect for public health 

* No history of supporting Donald Trump's racist bullshit or anything similar. 

This is a highly selective process. If selected, you are expected to be on time, prepared, and open to growth/critique. No one knows everything, we are all still learning -- we all need to maintain this attitude of humility.
