Our Story

Hi, we're Alexie and Virginia and we are so happy to have you on our website! We'd love to share a little bit about us and how we got here just so you can get to know us. To start, we both are Board Certified Behavior Analysts. We have many years of hands-on experience providing a variety of ABA services to many children and their families in a variety of settings: homes, clinics, schools, daycare, and out in the community. Over the years, we have happily and successfully helped children with various needs learn how to communicate, play, socialize, eat better, and become more independent. We love being able to empower parents with confidence and support by teaching them all the valuable ABA strategies we have learned over the years in order to help them be an integral part of their child's progress. We also enjoy providing guidance, support and supervision to budding behavior analysis practitioners. Since starting in the ABA field in 2012, we have demonstrated our commitment to learning and professional growth by pursuing every level of certification the field has to offer - yes, that means we've been behavior techs, BCaBAs, and now BCBAs! What makes us really powerful is what brought us together to create Pivotal Achievements and that is our mutual understanding and collective experiences in the field of ABA. Pivotal Achievements was born out of our frustrations and desire to change the current landscape of the ABA field by building a company that aligns with our values and helps everyone we interact with achieve meaningful success - that means children, families, and all the practitioners that have decided to make this field a part of their life journey. When deciding on our name, we knew it had to be reflective of our mission. The word pivotal means, "of crucial importance in relation to the development or success of something else", and that's exactly what we want for everyone that we interact with: "Pivotal Achievements". For us, building the type of culture that restores confidence in the field of ABA by focusing on happy kids and parents, clinical integrity, staff support, respect, collaboration,  and professional growth would be our "Pivotal Achievement" that results in giving our life meaning and joy. Our expertise, love for our profession and our desire to be different from the rest is what makes us who we are.

We hope to see you soon.
