Rebecca has been providing behavioral support to children and their families for nearly two decades.
She is a strong proponent of (NET) Natural Environment Teaching, and has found coaching in the moment in the child’s home, school and other environments to be highly effective. Bridging the gap between the therapy room and home she enjoys creating, collaborating and communicating common goals and objectives that promote “whole child” wellness across environments and therapists.
Rebecca specializes in navigating highly complex cases where children have not responded to traditional therapies.
Along with providing behavior support during challenging times at home, Rebecca also provides training in social skills, respect, kindness, the collapse of parenting, common sense, whole family perspective taking and accepting no. She is an advocate of family togetherness and play. In addition to the home environment, Rebecca provides real time coaching for family vacations, errands, doctor’s appointments and other challenging events.
Rebecca has also worked with and in many private and public schools as a consultant in classroom management, behavior modification, pro-active/re-active strategies training and strategic problem solving. In addition, she has vast experience working as a school shadow for students with a complex social, emotional and behavioral profile and excels at untangling misread and mistreated Behavior Intervention Plans. Rebecca also consults on the writing of social, emotional, behavioral curriculum and lesson plans as well as the review, editing and writing of their IEP goals and objectives. She is a strong advocate of nurturing a child’s EQ (Emotional Intelligence).
Prior to her work as a Behaviorist, Rebecca had a long career in professional theatre.
