Providing therapy to individuals diagnosed with autism and other intellectual disabilities is very rewarding, and I love seeing the progress and growth to their full potential. I first decided that I wanted to work with individuals diagnosed with disabilities when I was doing an assignment for class during my undergraduate work in a special education classroom. Since then, I have worked with individuals diagnosed with autism and other intellectual disabilities ranging from 18 months through adulthood. I have worked in many different settings, including in-home, clinics, group homes doing research, and school districts. My interests include Early Intervention and Verbal Behavior.

I enjoy working with children with autism because I am not just helping one individual; I am helping a whole family learn to function better, together. I began working with children with autism after finishing my undergraduate work in psychology at Cal State Northridge. I then began my work as a graduate student and assisted research exploring the effects of internet support groups for parents of children living with autism, as well as variables effecting turnover rates of behavior interventionists working with children with autism for southern California agencies providing one-to-one ABA therapy. I have worked with a variety of disabilities including; autism, William’s syndrome, Down syndrome, Q6 deletion, CP, and MR.
