ABA Private Practice Mentorship

Empowering and equipping you with the tools you need to reinvent your professional life


Are you ready to enter the world of private practice?

Are you burnt out of a tiered model of services filled with turnover, stress and high volume, low quality caseloads?

Do you dream of other career paths and jobs that don't feel so draining?

Did you go into ABA to have a meaningful impact in the lives of children and their families? 

I was in the same place as you were a few years ago - I even thought about law school instead of behavior analysis!  That's how you know I was completely drained.  

Instead, I re-examined my options with my current credentials, and have developed a thriving private practice. 

81.84% of BCBAs specialize in autism (BACB, 2024).  But we all know that the principles of behavior are everywhere and can be applied to any population.  Autism treatment continues to be a necessary component of our field, but is not the only area of specialty.  

Unfortunately, we have created a cycle that has narrowed our scope: we typically train with the autism population, which generates a need for funding, which generates research to support efficacy.

Together, we can expand the scope of practice.

My goal for this course is to train others to replicate my model.  By increasing the number of providers who are competent in other practice areas, we increase the need for funding and research.  We can change this cycle.

What's even more, you can be a part of the change while also increasing your job satisfaction, flexibility and quite possibly your income!

But wait, what is my practice model?

I provide direct therapy in "low doses" to children who benefit from ABA.  

"Low doses" = 1-2 times per week for 45 minutes - 1 hour 

"Children who benefit from ABA" = could be any child, but is typically a child with a diagnosis such as ADHD or anxiety, and who is struggling with emotional regulation, social skills and/or executive functioning

These are children who require additional opportunities to build skills and neural pathways towards socially significant behaviors that address the challenges that they are experiencing. 

This may feel familiar to related services, such as OT, SLP and counseling, but focuses on behavioral change and habit building.  AKA, skills that we as behavior analysts are uniquely qualified to focus on and teach. 

In addition, my model, like traditional ABA treatment, focuses on parent collaboration and support.  Every session has a parent communication component.  Strategies are given to empower parents with tools to improve home life and to better meet their child's needs.  The parent, as an equal partner, also provides critical feedback on the generalization of skills taught during therapy sessions. 

I have learned that there is a huge gap in services for children with emotional and behavioral needs.  Parents go from OT to SLP to MSW in search of someone who understands their child, their family needs, and can give everyone replacement behaviors to improve overall functioning and dynamics.  While other clinicians are also qualified, they are few and far between.  Too many families are left struggling, and too many children do not have adequate support.
