“The science of ABA works, and its impact is large. I love helping families make changes that make a big, positive impact on their life. I love my kids, I love my science, and I work with the best people in the business.

I want families to know, while we will never be the child’s parent or a family member, we will care and love like we are. Once you can build a relationship, you can start to teach and guide and discover new things, and isn’t that what we want for every child? To learn, discover, and be the best version of themselves they can be? We want to provide that space for our kids and families, every single day. 

Whether families choose us for their therapy or not, I want people to know we are here to provide help and resources for those looking for therapy (ABA, OT, or Speech) and we will do everything we can to find someone who is a good match for them, even if it’s not us.”

“I’m passionate about increasing the development of young children. I’ve seen firsthand what ABA can do for the client and the positive impact it has on their lives.

The best part about my job is teaching children to communicate. Each intervention is personalized based on each client, so I’m able to construct a plan that suits their needs. I love teaching parents to communicate with their children and provide strategies on how to reduce maladaptive behaviors.

At ABA Therapy for Life, we offer a unique mock classroom experience that provides our client’s an opportunity to enhance their skills through the use of verbal behavior.”

“Occupational therapy allows me to combine creativity, science, and problem solving to help individuals achieve what is most meaningful to them.

My favorite part of my job is working with children and witnessing their skill sets grow. I believe that the small triumphs achieved daily translate to increased self-esteem and independence in activities of daily life.

Our interdisciplinary approach to therapy brings ABA, speech, and occupational therapy into one setting. Our therapists are incredibly passionate, caring, and committed to delivering high-quality care.”

“I chose pediatric occupational therapy because it combines my love for children and rehabilitation into one important role. In pediatrics, we have so much fun as well as the greatest amount of support the children need. 

My absolute favorite part of my job is witnessing a difference being made in each client’s life as I watch their faces light up when they accomplish a task that was once challenging for them. It is incredibly rewarding and a highlight of my career to celebrate the progress and achievements with the client and their families.

ABA Therapy for Life offers so many unique opportunities and quality therapists that several competitors don’t provide. My colleagues are some of the most compassionate and dedicated people I have had the pleasure to meet and work with. The clients and their families are always our priority and we ensure they are receiving the best service each client deserves.

I am so excited to join the ABA Therapy for Life team and make a difference in each kids’ lives.”
