Alevtina (Alia) Basantsov

Board Certified Behavior Analyst

Alevtina has worked with children for over 15 years, helping to better their and their parents’ lives. She started working as a summer camp organizer to build communities and create events for families, finding a passion for helping children overcome obstacles in their social and developmental lives. Three years ago, she decided to take a leap of faith to pursue her passion as a career: starting as an RBT and quickly growing to become a BCBA, loving every minute of her journey.

She believes in helping to build happy, fulfilling lives for everyone. Having a lot of experience in early intervention therapies with non-verbal clients.

Alevtina was born in Moscow and grew up traveling all over Europe. She is fluent in Russian and English. She loves smiles, sunshine, and beaches, spending time with family, and growing her daughter.
