My Story

Ever since I finished my studies in Psychology 2 years ago, I have been looking for the right path. When I moved to Illinois, I started working as a behavior technician and I loved the job. So I started looking for a place where I could develop my skills and grow.

My Advocacy

I’m a huge advocate of helping those who are less fortunate in my home country (Colombia), and I try to support organizations that align with my beliefs, such as the following TECHO (Colombia) is an organization that is responsible for building good quality houses for populations that do not have access to basic services such as water or electricity. Gatio (Colombia) is an organization that is responsible for rescuing cats that were abandoned, rehabilitating them, and also finding them a new forever home Brains in Action (Colombia) is a program that helps older adults delay the development of memory-related diseases and maintain a good quality of life through psychological tools.

My Professional Goals

  1. Continue studying to be able to grow in this beautiful career.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
