My name is Gbemi and I am a Behavior Change Specialist.
As your Behavior Coach, I simplify the complex science of Behavior Analysis and teach you how to apply the Psychology of Learning to improve your everyday life.
Throughout my career in Human Services, I have had the opportunity to help people in different roles: as a Behavior Therapist, Crisis Counselor, Case Manager and more recently, Disability Integration Advisor. I have experienced firsthand, the difference that being provided with the right information and support can make in a person’s life, whether they are trying to recover from the devastating effects of a hurricane, or supporting a loved one with a disability, or a child diagnosed with Autism. To increase my capacity to help, I am currently enrolled in graduate school, working towards a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I have not only found great success using the knowledge I gained from my Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Science to help people, I also found practical ways to apply the knowledge to improve my everyday life. I am Board Certified in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the evidence based intervention for Autism. I found that I could apply the same principles that improved outcomes for my clients on the Autism spectrum to my typically developing children with good results.
I began to share my experiences, and the more questions I received and answered from other parents, the more I realized that having the right information and support can change the game for parents. I did not just know how to parent better instinctively. I learned the science. Now I want to share it with you.
ABA is a complex science though. I had to take several classes, get 1,500 supervised experienced hours and pass a board exam to become a BCaBA. You don’t have to go through all of that. I can simplify the science and show you practical ways to apply the principles to improve your everyday life, not just as a parent looking to modify the behavior of their children, but also in other areas of your life, changing your own behavior.
So, let’s talk about behavior.
