Margarita Rice PMHNP / FNP
Psychiatric Telemedicine in Texas
I have been a practicing Nurse Practitioner since 2011 working with people of all ages and health states. I have walked with others through birth, death, and the day-to-day ritual of life. I consider this work a privilege. I practice relationship centered psychiatric care. You will be educated and empowered to find your best health.
I have a background in Women's Health, Geriatrics (including dementia), and Metabolic Health.
I am a married mother of three adult children. I am a follower of Christ and respect your right to your own spirituality. I desire to assist people in their journey to health - body, mind, and spirit.
My self-care activities include reading, embroidery, outdoor walks, 90s Hip Hop, and British TV.
