Coming Home

When I started in this field 14 years ago, I was sure that my work as a classroom assistant in an inclusive preschool classroom would be short-lived. I never dreamed of furthering my education and career in the field of applied behavior analysis. Nevertheless - here I am! After having worked in a variety of applied settings (schools, homes, community, centers, residential facilities, telehealth), I am marrying my passions of providing high-quality behavior analytic interventions and increasing access to supportive services in underserved populations. This has led me back home, to the south side of inner-city Atlanta, where I was born and raised.

My experiences in this field have shaped every part of me. As a Black woman, mother, wife, and small-business owner, my goal is to harness all the personal and professional experiences I have to provide therapy that is client-focused and culturally aware. My vision includes creating an environment in which difference and diversity are celebrated and cherished, where we are all lifelong learners, and where everyone has a seat at the table - but clients sit at the head. I believe that this vision will create the best opportunity for effective therapy. I hope that EBG will not only serve as a center-based ABA therapy provider, but a community partner for years to come in this area. Get ready Atlanta - we have work to do!

Welcome back home and congratulations on your new clinic!!! Thank you so much for focusing on communities who lack these necessary services for those who will benefit most from them.
