Registered Behavior Technician
Laura was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to Miami in 2008 when she graduated high school. She attended MDC to obtain an AA in Biology and later on attended FIU to complete a Bachelors in Psychology. On her last semester at FIU, a classmate mentioned ABA and she got curious. Laura always had an interest in working with children and so with the help of many wonderful BCaBAs and BCBAs, she's been working as an RBT since 2015. She went back to FIU in 2021 to complete the course sequence to qualify for the BCaBA certification exam.

What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It is important for my clients to feel comfortable and encouraged by me as their therapist.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
I would like to believe that I am helping my clients to the best of my ability working along caregivers and supervisors to ensure they are getting the best interactions, care and opportunities.
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
I've wanted to work with children since I was a child myself, it just ended up being in a different field all together. Having good supervisors along the way willing to teach me what they know to ensure my clients are in good hands has been a great experience.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
I believe when each individual client is provided with the tools they need, they can achieve their goals.
