Registered Behavior Technician
Rachel became interested in ABA when her son was diagnosed with Autism at age 2. She was concerned with the lack of initial support, which prompted her to join the field to learn firsthand how to deal with her son's behaviors. Since then, she has worked with many families and children of various ages. Working in ABA, and seeing the positive results with the families she has worked with, has made Rachel very happy and given her a sense of accomplishment. Her experience in the field has also helped with her son as well.

What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It is important for my client to feel comfortable and safe when working with me. I believe it is very important to pair in the beginning, so you and your client can establish a relationship, so you can gain instructional control.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
I believe I can be a strong support system for my client, as well as their family. Because I have dealt with similar issues firsthand, I feel like it has helped me develop empathy and understanding for my clients.
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
I am a very results-driven person, and I will show up and give my all to seeing my clients progress.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
I believe in celebrating even the smallest of victories and milestones, so any improvement in any area, as tiny as it may be is a victory.
