What I Do To De-stress In My Free Time

To de-stress, I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, going to the beach, finding new creative ways to engage my children and growth their imagination and my own. I relax by reading books, cooking and trying new foods, and lounging on the couch to watch movies.

My Work Style

I like to start with hearing what families need and are looking for; what change are they hoping to see. I want to observe the client, see and hear information before discussing with the families and client my ideas and approaches to help. I like to find ways to blend programs into each family's life. I want to monitor the programs and have open communication to make changes and adjustments as needed. I like to be inclusive, collaborative, and open.

Why I Became a BCBA

I became a BCBA to help families develop skills in applied behavior analysis and make behavioral change. I wanted to learn the knowledge I learned and apply it in real life situations to help others. I wanted to share my knowledge with as many people as possible to help create an environment for individuals/families to flourish.

What Previous Clients Would Say About Me

My previous clients would tell you I am passionate about helping them communicate in ways unique to them. I am dedicated to helping them find their way to be heard by others and respected.

What I Love Most About What I Do

I love creating person centered and personalized programs for each client and family. I love open communication to assist in developing functional and significant change that fits for each individual's life and the people around them.

Most Challenging Professional Moment

The most challenging professional moment for me has been not finding a way to help a client. When the methods used are now showing or creating progress and the client and families are still looking for guidance. When more restrictions are needed, I feel as though I missed something the client needed or was trying to communicate to me to find the right individualized plan for them.

Most Rewarding Professional Moment

The most rewarding moment professionally is seeing the growth in a client and family. Watching a client increase their communication skills and families expressing progress means growth is the reward.
