Tami was born and raised in California and has lived in Utah since 2011. Tami and her partner met through BYU folkdance and have 3 beautiful children together. If she somehow finds time she likes to spend it creating art, making photo albums, playing video games, and dancing with her husband.
Tami earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders from Brigham Young University in 2016. After graduating she took what she thought would be a temporary job working with children on the autism spectrum and quickly fell in love with it. In 2018 she completed a Masters of Education in Applied Behavior Analysis from Utah Valley University.
Tami believes ABA treatment should center around improving each client’s life and be closely aligned with their values. Tami focuses on helping individuals overcome self-defeating tendencies and increasing skills that will help them to reach their own goals. She structures therapy in small attainable steps and strictly avoids implying that any autistic individual is broken and needs to be fixed.
