About John

As a Registered Behavior Therapist, I have extensive experience increasing children's pragmatic language skills, enhancing verbal fluency, increasing adaptive skills relating to interpersonal communications, and increasing overall language competency. Improving patient behavior via the implementation of behavior plans, while enhancing academic skills, is a particular competency. In the last couple years I have changed careers to give back and focus my energies on helping children become the best they can be!

I have a Master's Degree in English with a focus in Rhetoric and Composition. I have taught English, communication, news writing, and American Studies courses at three different colleges and universities. I also have much experience as substitute teacher in public schools.

I am an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Registered Behavior Therapist, and have experience working with children with special needs in clinical, home, and school settings.

I love working with children and foster a fun environment in which to learn and grow. I am essentially a "big Kid" that loves setting goals and then reaching them!
