Maria Mendoza-Rodriguez, PsyD
Carlos Albizu University
Ever since I was young, I was always counseling my friends. I like helping people, so I became a psychologist. I was attracted to Mountain Park because I could see how close and patient-centered everyone is.
I want my patients to know I am going to support them in whatever they want to do. Whatever they need from me, I’m here for them. I have worked in jails before and I’ve seen lots of pain and trauma. That thought me how important it is to treat every person as a human and learn from them without judgment.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my kids. We like going to the movies together as a family.
If I wasn’t in healthcare, I think I’d be a teacher or a lawyer.
