My Story

I graduated from UIC in the Spring of 2018 with a focus on Rehabilitation and Disability and Human Development. I knew I wanted to work with kids and one day become an Occupational Therapist, but I was unsure of what to do until then. I had a friend that was already in Occupational Therapy school introduce me to the world of ABA, and I immediately fell in love with the field. I was really surprised at how closely OT’s and ABA therapists could work. I got my first job as a Behavior Therapist in March of 2019 and became certified RBT in October 2019. Being an ABA therapist is one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done,  and I am so grateful to have found this field!

My Eyas Landing

I enjoy working with people that I know truly care about our clients and their progress. Everyone at Eyas is always so willing to lend a helping hand if need be. Working at Eyas has taught me how to work with other disciplines as a cohesive unit, as opposed to working as separate entities.  

 

My Professional Goals

  1. I am currently working towards getting into Occupational Therapy school. I love Occupational Therapy, and I plan to work in pediatrics after I get my degree. Working as an RBT has given me the tools and skillset to work with children with varying skills and abilities. 

     

Eyas Landing is a therapy clinic with a mission to provide evidence-based and family-centered therapy services for children, adolescents, and their families. The primary goal is to deliver relationship-based interventions within the most natural environments and to empower families to reach their full potential. To achieve this goal, our highly educated, compassionate staff dedicates time and expertise to create experiences that maximize therapeutic outcomes. The strength, determination, and perseverance of our clients are evident as they succeed in therapy, and ultimately in their daily lives.

Eyas Landing offers a wide range of comprehensive services including Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, ABA Therapy, Social Work, Family Therapy, and Neuropsych testing. Services are provided throughout the Chicagoland area via Telehealth, In-Home, and in our state of the art clinic.
