Owner / Lead Consultant
My goal is to help families become happier – one behavior at a time. I have been providing behavioral therapy and consultation to families and educators for over a decade.
My professional career started in 2002, while I was working with a clinical psychologist, Dr. James Cordle, to help parents and teachers improve challenging behaviors of their children/students. Seeing the positive change in the families’ 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 (UMBC), and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
My clinical experience includes:
Developing and implementing behavior plans to improve challenging behaviors for individuals of varying ages, functioning levels and/or diagnoses (e.g., typical development, developmental delays, developmental and intellectual disabilities, ADHD, ADD, OCD, ODD, etc.)
Training caregivers and educators to implement behavioral strategies
Developing skill acquisition home programs for individual who demonstrate skill deficits
Delivering presentations and conducting workshops to parents and educators on different topics within the area of human behavior
Supervising individuals who are working towards becoming Behavior Analysts
