About Me

Born in Concordia, Colombia—high in the mountains of Colombia where coffee is produced—Dr. Aristizabal always dreamed of becoming a physician. She received her medical degree at the University of Antioquia where she became a general surgeon. Dr. Aristizabal worked for over 12 years at a local hospital in Colombia before moving to the United States in 2003.

Dr. Aristizabal needed to get licensed in the U.S. and always felt a calling to psychiatric services. She went back to school and graduated as a Nurse Practitioner and became board-certified in Psychiatry at Florida International University.

Dr. Aristizabal worked at HCA Kendall Regional Medical Center for six years while also working at:

  • CHI – Community Health of South Florida
  • Recovery First of South Florida (working with patients in recovery—both inpatient and intensive)
  • ALF (Assisted Living Facilities in Broward County)

In addition to working at PSYCH-4U, she also works for the inpatient psychiatric program at Broward Health Medical Center and Broward Health Imperial Point.
