Carissa has been in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) since 2012. She began her career as a 1:1 therapist before getting her Master of Science in Special Education with a focus in Autism in 2017. Carissa went on to get her Behavior Analyst Certification in 2021 and since then has committed herself to shifting the practice of ABA into a compassionate care model. Carissa has experience in home, school, and residential settings and uses her experience to disseminate assent-based ABA models to colleagues and supervisees. Her passion for providing quality ABA focused on the individuals she serves led her to open Arc Light Behavioral Health Collective where providers can use compassionate values to guide their practice in collaboration with families and those we serve.

My approach to therapy

At Arc Light Behavioral Health Collective we believe in putting our values first. Our practice uses assent-based procedures and compassion drives our relationships with families and clients. We are committed to understanding the individuals we serve and their motivations so that we can be part of the team that helps them reach their goals. All treatment is individualized to meet the needs of the client and their care givers, evidence-based, and chosen with our values at the forefront. We are data driven to ensure that progress is measurable and socially significant with a focus on skill building. We believe in working collaboratively with all members of our client’s team including their care givers and other providers. When we work together, we can reach new horizons!

What to expect

At Arc Light Behavioral Health Collective families can expect a personal approach. Arc Light is owned and operated by a BCBA with years of experience that works directly with families. From referral to treatment families can expect open communication and collaboration with their team. Care givers know their children best and we are here to listen to the goals that are most important for the individual and your family. Families can expect a compassionate approach to ABA from our staff whom we train in value-based procedures as well as the most up to date ABA practices from our research. Our clinicians are committed to continuing education and current best practices.
