About Helga

My name is Helga and I have been working with children for 15 years. I graduated from UC Davis with a major in Psychology. I enjoy working with children because they bring so much joy to my day and I love to see the growth they make. I am currently a Program Supervisor for children with autism and have been for almost 10 years. The outcome of therapy is extremely rewarding. Experience: 15 years all ages 0 months – 23 years. I have years of ABA, NET, Positive practice, verbal behavior, Denver model, PRT, Pecs, ACC device, Behavior management, BLS, and Etc. My passion to help families shows in my work ethics and patience. I understand, especially with Special Needs cases that it’s difficult for parents to extend outside of their typical routines. Therefore, being able to help families brings satisfaction to me. I not only love working with children but its reinforcing to help families in general. I take pride in all that I do. Families will feel relieved to know that their children are in great hands, by not only a caring individual but with someone who has years of knowledge and training in the field of Special Education. I look forward to hearing from you and meeting your family. My name is Helga and I have been working with children for 15 years. I graduated from UC Davis with a major in Psychology.
