Cathy Gomez 2 2016

Cathy has been working in the field of behavior analysis since 2007. She began her career as a direct service provider in a center-based program in Sacramento, CA, and has since worked her way through the ranks to her current position as a Senior Clinician with BCI. She has worked with families in both Northern and Southern California, the Central Valley, as well as in Washington State. She began her service with BCI in March of 2016.

In her current position as a Senior Clinician Cathy is responsible for the assessment and ongoing programming for clients and their caregivers, supervision and support for behavior technicians, providing support and feedback to caregivers regarding management of their child’s challenging behavior, reporting progress to both caregivers and funding sources, and supervision and mentorship of BCI’s Clinical Interns. These services will be provided to rural and underserved areas across the United States via a telehealth model.

The BCI Mission and what it means to me

It is exciting to work with a company that recognizes the need for high-quality care for those in rural and underserved areas. Growing up in a small town in Washington State, I understand first-hand how difficult it can be for families to access necessary services. Without companies such as BCI who not only provide telehealth, but also work diligently to advance services provided through this model, many of these families would receive inadequate or no services. I plan to contribute by bringing my years of varied experience to the company, as well as a positive and team-oriented attitude, in order serve these families.
