Building Bridges

About Us














Board Certified Behavior Analysts

Building Bridges was established in Portland, Oregon in 2000 by Elizabeth Mishler and Emily Hoyt. Together they have grown the business from a small, home-based therapy service, to the highly respected clinic it is today. Building Bridges is committed to excellence in scientifically-based intervention. We exceed state standards for treatment quality and interventionist supervision. Building Bridges also maintains close relationships with several universities in the Portland area. We are a practicum site for graduate students of Pacific University's Counseling Psychology program, and graduate students of Oregon Institute of Technology's Applied Behavior Analysis program. 



Registered Behavior Interventionists, RBIs 

The majority of our RBIs have master’s degrees and many years of experience in the field. Our RBIs are highly educated, dedicated, responsible, compassionate people. Our standards are much higher than those mandated by the state. We believe top quality interventionists lead to superior patient outcomes.
