Erin studied psychology at the University of Oregon, and then pursued her master’s in counseling psychology at Pacific University before attaining her counseling license with the state of Oregon. Both during her master’s program and after completion, Erin worked as a behavior therapist at Building Bridges utilizing a variety of evidence based practices with children with autism and related disorders, starting in 2011. These included: discrete trial training (DTT), incidental and naturalistic teaching (NET), and functional communication training (FCT). Erin completed Arizona State University’s Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) certificate program after working as a behavior therapist for four years. Erin now works as a BCBA at Building Bridges where she is dedicated to providing evidence based practices in home, community, and clinic settings. Erin believes in individualizing ABA programs to meet each child’s specific needs and in enhancing communication between the child’s therapy team and family to increase generalization of skills and maximize progress. In her leisure time, Erin enjoys hiking with her husband and two dogs, running, and completing projects on her home.
