Eric Aguilar, PMHNP
Eric Aguilar was born and raised in El Paso, Texas and is newer to the Jackson area while bringing over 10 years of nursing experience with him, along with his wife and highly energetic Doodle. Eric obtained his Bachelor of Nursing Degree from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico in 2012, where he has practiced as a Registered Nurse across a multitude of hospital settings delivering empathetic care to countless individuals in their most vulnerable states. Engaging in three years of travel nursing also afforded him the opportunity to learn from and gain perspective on the diverse patient populations across the United States. In recognizing that health cannot exist with mental health, Eric returned to school and graduated from the inaugural Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program at the University of Texas at El Paso in the Fall of 2022, achieving his Master’s degree in nursing.
Eric’s “why” in becoming a mental health provider is fueled by having faced numerous tragedies of life and in recognizing the endless challenges that others encounter each day. He believes his role as a PMHNP presents a unique opportunity to serve the public by preventing, identifying, and treating the increasingly broad range of psychiatric conditions, incorporating nursing, psychosocial, and neurobiological understanding to partner with individuals to reach their goals of living productive, meaningful, purposeful lives, and to integrate as valuable members in their communities.
Nicole Harwell, PMHNP
Nicole first began as an intern at iMind last year but has now transitioned to a full time Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Her enthusiasm is palpable, and her genuine passion for mental health is evident in the care she provides for her patients.Nicole says: I have been a nurse for over 22 years in various areas of nursing, from neonates to adults. I went into nursing because I am passionate about caring for others. I genuinely believe I have made a difference, and, with each job, God has orchestrated a part of my personal story. My time as a Neonatal ICU nurse prepared me for premature identical twins. My personal experiences allowed me to grow and persevere through difficult times, accept help when offered, and become an advocate for children.
I am thankful for the experiences I had in NICU. The growth and knowledge I gained prepared me to later become the primary caretaker of my father, who was diagnosed with early-onset dementia and left alone due to some choices from drug addiction. At that time, I was also placed in a case management position which was the perfect place to prepare me for the journey ahead. After working in case management, I realized the need of disadvantaged populations, and it helped to teach me creative ways to find resources that would improve the care of my patients.
Life experience has taught me so much about mental health- from learning disabilities, ADHD, and anxiety in my children, to addiction, depression, and dementia in adults. I am excited to work as a psychiatric nurse practitioner and look forward to the opportunity for ongoing professional and personal growth. I am undoubtedly called to this exact point to encourage others, help them seek guidance, and become their advocate in an ever-changing healthcare world.
Nicole is now accepting new patients, both children and adults. Please call 731-300-0810 to find out more information on how to schedule an appointment.
