Victor Velasquez, M.A.

Senior Behavior Management Consultant, Program Coordinator

 

My name is Victor Velasquez and I joined Counseling Solutions in 2017. I obtained a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Learning and Teaching with an Emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). I completed my ABA course work along with 1500 hours of direct 1:1 ABA therapy and 75 supervised hours by a BCBA. I am BCBA eligible and looking forward to taking BCBA exam. My goal is to share the knowledge and experience I've gained in ABA to improve the quality of life and make social significant change in the families and communities we work in. The most difficult and best part of our job is having families graduate Dr. Maung's  behavioral program. Leaving families with the tools and resources along with the know how to modify behavior is a lifetime reward families are grateful for. I look forward to furthering my knowledge and experience to help those in need.
