Owner / Lead Consultant
Hi, my name is Ifat Bilitzer. I have more than 20 years of experience as a behavioral therapist; changing people’s lives – one behavior at a time.
My professional career started in 2002, while I was working with a clinical psychologist, Dr. James Cordle. Together, we helped parents and teachers improve children’s challenging behaviors and the overall dynamics at home and in the classroom. Seeing the positive changes in our clients’ lives made me realize that behavioral therapy was my calling.
Since then, I received a B.A. in psychology from the University of Florida, an M.A.in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. In the past few years, I have had extensive training and practice in utilizing the evidence-based approach of Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT). Incorporating ACT into my work with my clients has been incredible and highly effective. After all, our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are all interconnected.
I am passionate about many aspects of this field. More specifically, however, my clinical focus includes:
Creating behavior plans to improve challenging behaviors for individuals of varying ages, functioning levels and/or diagnoses (e.g., typical development/no diagnosis, developmental delays, developmental and intellectual disabilities, and diagnoses such as ADHD, ADD, OCD, ODD, and )
Training caregivers and educators to implement behavioral strategies at homes and schools
Helping adults find ways to live more meaningful and fulfilled lives
Conducting workshops and training to parents and educators on different topics within the area of human behavior
Developing skill acquisition home and school programs for individuals who demonstrate skill deficits
Supervising individuals who are working towards becoming Behavior Analysts
