Registered Behavior Technician

Jennife Sanchez always had a natural inclination to make a positive impact in the lives of others. In high school she was president of the special needs club and volunteered in her community helping the youth. She knew she wanted to pursue a career in psychology that involved working with children. While completing her Bachelors degree at Florida International University, she began to work as a behavior therapist. Making a positive impact in the lives of her clients and their families is her highest priority, while also creating a reinforcing interactive environment for the client. She is currently enrolled in graduate school pursuing a Master's degree in Applied Behavior Analysis and she is thrilled to continue to work passionately and see her clients and their families thriving.

What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?

It's important for me for my client to feel safe and included in their sessions. My priority is to create a fun, interactive, and reinforcing environment for the client.

Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?

When helping a client manage their problems, I consider myself a part of their support system. My focus is to help the client learn and unlock their full potential in order for them to become as independent as possible.

What drives your passion for seeing clients?

My passion is driven by seeing my clients and their families thrive! I love to see my clients learn skills that will help them live a full life.

How do you believe clients "get better"?

I believe clients get better in an environment that is safe and individualized for their unique needs. To focus on the client's unique needs I believe is the key to create a supporting atmosphere that is catered for them to meet their highest potential.
