Lara B.
Lara B, BCBA earned her Bachelor’s in Psychology from Purdue University Calumet in 2000. For her first clinical experience, she worked as an in-home therapist with a child diagnosed with autism. She so loved being a part of the child’s learning and progress, that she started providing in-home therapy for many other children and their families. She then decided to pursue higher education to better support her clients’ needs. In 2007, Lara graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with a Master’s in Clinical Psychology, and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. She has provided her services in both in-home and clinical settings, as well as collaborated with schools to support her client’s needs. Lara not only loves working directly with her clients, she also values being able to help their families through caregiver coaching sessions. Additionally, she supervised Registered Behavior Technicians and graduate students pursuing board certification. She values the importance of building collaborative relationships with families, schools, and other professionals on her clients’ teams. Lara believes that children learn best through interactive play-based activities, and that fun is the key to success!
