Back in college she was working at the mall when someone who would change her life forever entered. Starting at a respite care provider, Ashley learned about Applied Behavior Analysis through the provider working with one of the families she worked with. A short 3 years later, she was enrolled in graduate coursework to pursue her Masters in Special Education. Ashley relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area for 4 years, serving as a clinician, a clinical manager, and supervisor to graduate students, but her heart was always set on moving back to Central Texas. Disenchanted with the lack of quality of services available to families, she opted to set a higher standard and provide Board Certified Behavior Analyst -direct services to a select client pool, removing barriers and lack of communication that so often are encountered with the 3-tier service model.
Ashley holds a BA from Saint Edward’s University in Psychology, a Masters in Education in Special Education with a Concentration in Autism/Applied Behavior Analysis, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst from the BACB, and the Texas Licensed Behavior Analyst Credential. She upholds the ethics code per the BACB and continues to seek continuing education in the areas of cultural competency, trauma informed ABA, and listens to the voices of the neurodiversity movement to ensure her services are affirming to the individual. Ashley is open to answering any questions families may have in a free consultation about ABA and red flags for ABA service providers or the benefits of working with other therapies– at no cost.

in everything we do
Here are all the ways to work with me
Want to dive in?
Looking for a little more support problem solving behavioral concerns in home or at school? I will meet with you in home or via Zoom to provide support options which are evidence based to increase success across settings. This also can be used for support with specific areas such as toilet training, expanding language, increasing play skills, and more.
We offer a weekly group for ages 6-9 years old and a teen hang out group that meets locally to form friendships and connections.
If you have been on a waitlist for months and are looking to get your child assessed with a standardized developmental assessment to determine which direction to go, this is an option to get you moving. Often these assessments can be taken to other service providers (case by case basis.)
Trainings for businesses looking to be more inclusive to those who are neurodiverse can set up a consultation call or an ongoing training for their staff.
**Limited space** We do not offer 3-tier service model delivery. Work directly with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst/Licensed Behavior Analyst on an ongoing basis. This is for families seeking more intensive intervention for their children’s needs. Services can be provided in home, private school locations pending approval, and the community. Recommendations discussed with families on the onset of services.
