Christy S DeCaro – FNP-BC
Advanced Practice Registered Nurse
Christy S DeCaro FNP-BC, graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and completed a labor and delivery nurse residency program at Parkland Memorial Hospital. As a registered nurse she also worked in geriatrics, surgery, ambulatory care, and gastroenterology. She completed her Master of Science in Nursing at University of Texas at Arlington with honors as a Family Nurse Practitioner. Christy is a Board–Certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). She is also a member of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.
Christy began her career as a family nurse practitioner in orthopedic medicine working for the team physicians of the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Stars. She then began working at Southlake Integrative Wellness Center, and this is when she started truly planting her roots in integrative medicine and her passion grew deeply. Christy has gained a much deeper understanding of treating her patients more holistically from enduring her own transformative journey of health and healing.
Although she loved nursing, Christy felt that she did not have enough time with her patients to educate them about their well-being. She now enjoys helping patients focus on finding the root cause of their symptoms or disease, rather than just treating symptoms, as well as helping them focus on disease prevention. She guides her patients to tune into their bodies to focus on the mind, body and spirit. Christy prides herself in looking beyond the symptoms of illness and disease. She strives to empower her patients to attain positive control of their health through lifestyle changes and behavioral modification.
In her free time, Christy enjoys organic gardening, cooking, yoga, pilates, volleyball, basketball, reading, music, and art. She also enjoys spending time in nature and learning about essential oils, homeopathy, naturopathy, and traveling, or spending time with family and friends.
