Our Administrative Team
Dominic has had a number of years of experience in many areas of what some would call life and the pursuit of happiness, and is what most call a jack of all trades master of only a few. His studies at Weber State University have helped him learn how to utilize his ability to work with a wide variety of individuals, and his background in sales has aided him in being able to talk to anyone. The experience Dominic has had as a councilor/therapy tech has given him the knowledge and understanding of just how important mental health is. When Dominic isn’t working you can find him spending time with his wife and children. He likes Pina colada’s and getting caught in the rain, only when jogging or hiking. Dominic has a love-hate relationship when it comes to fixing, building, or maintaining his personal vehicle’s, and always enjoys a good game of paintball.

Frequently Ask Questions
What is ABA therapy?
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the science in which the principles of behavior are applied systematically to improve socially significant behavior and experimentation is used to identify the variables responsible for behavior change” (Cooper, Heron, & Heward, 2007). In simpler terms, ABA is the science of altering the environment and applying strategies to reduce challenging behaviors while increasing adaptive behaviors. We believe that each individual should be part of the planning process for their engagement in ABA therapy. ABA therapy targets social skills (in a neurodiversity affirming way), communication, daily living skills and more by applying evidence-based methods to improve a child’s ability to interact with their natural environment. We focus on the use of intrinsic motivation to work with the child while promoting a safe and controlled environment, giving them the best chance at success. Our approach is completely individualized for each child. We seek to understand the function (or the reason) behind each behavior with the knowledge that behavior is communication. We attempt to listen to this communication by implementing evidence-based interventions while keeping a neurodiversity-affirming approach in mind each step of the way.
