Campo has been an effort by many since 2001 to create a place where people could get what they need and not have to go to an acute care hospital. People who did not communicate well or had learning disabilities were not well served in acute inpatient settings. We realized that everyone supporting an individual needed to participate in the evaluation and treatment for it to be effective. Too often a person would get a "tune up" and sent back to the same place only for their symptoms to recur.
I have been in general psychiatric practice in Las Cruces since 1991 and treat a range of conditions. I continue to serve the community privately as well as through the DD waver and Campo. With staff available and an efficient and enjoyable team of nursing and finance we are providing services of the best quality I have enjoyed in my career. Kohutian psychotherapy and minimalist medication management done by one doctor works well in today’s world of fragmenting care.
Being a community physician growing up in a medical family among doctors and nurses and physical therapists, starting as an orderly, I have maintained a holistic view and my wife Deborah RN lends a hand with traditional treatments that can be safe and effective and we are able to help avoid MEDICAL over treatment for Campo.
My clinical work would be best described as a cross cultural self-psychologist with an emphasis on medical service systems analysis and community health. I am a Spanish speaker but would not be qualified as bilingual. I am fluent in anthropology concepts and its relevance to today’s stressors. 14 1/2 years of acute care inpatient community work added to my private practice helped me to refine my approach to behavioral care and since 2006 we have provided a residential option and I am no longer directly involved with inpatient work but maintain collaborative relationships with the local hospitals on the rare occasion that security of that level is required.
I have been enjoying my third year at Campo Behavioral Health. I came to work with individuals with Developmental Disabilities after working in the Accounting and Construction Industries as well as private consulting for business management. It has been a steep learning curve for me and I enjoy the challenges in working with and for the individuals and staff of Campo Behavioral Health. I graduated from NMSU with a bachelor's degree in accounting and have had experience in business finance and management over the course of the last 28 years. Seeing Campo come through some business hurdles and transitions in the DD Waiver Standards and business model has been very interesting. I am looking forward to a long future with Campo Behavioral Health and the opportunity to support our clients and the staff as we continue to grow.
I have been in New Mexico most of my life and received a BS degree from NMSU. I have been a tradesman a contractor a teacher and have been known as "paint chip" because of my expertise in everything paint related. I have worked with campo for 5 years to sustain safe and pleasant homes for the people that tend to take out their frustrations or attempt to communicate via property damage. It takes novel approaches and constant maintenance.
I am able to take care of the physical operations so that our clinical staff can do their work in a safe and predictable environment.
I am from Las Cruces and have lots of contacts and family in the area. I am a graduate of NMSU/
Being educated in business and economics has helped me greatly as I work in training and management as well as finding the best people suited for working with interesting yet challenging people with developmental disabilities.
I have been with Campo for 4 years and never had a dull day

I came to Campo two years ago looking for a career that was more than just a job. I am a family person with children and enjoy working at Campo because all of us come from families and here we have the flexibility to deal with our own priorities as well as those of our employers (The people we serve).
I started in information management and have trained in all aspects of Campo Services and intend to continue to progress in the management of our part of people’s lives as well as the interface between Campo and the state of NM and their participation in the intensive needs that occur. Like others here I will be growing in management responsibilities skill development and education. I like the pace and the excitement of participating in so many different people’s lives.
