I have some very exciting news to share with you all! Anna Williams and I have just launched our new business, San Diego Behavior Solutions! Check out our website here 

Anna has been a clinician at San Diego First for quite some time now. Together, we noticed a gap in the mental health field and decided to create San Diego Behavior Solutions to help children and families learn new skills and behaviors through daily routines in naturalistic settings.

San Diego Behavior Solutions provides in-home behavioral health services to improve  skills and support children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, and other social and behavioral challenges.

We are so excited to have Charles Aguilar on our team as our behavior specialist/ interventionist. In addition to direct intervention and skills training with children, Charlie also provides:

  • 1:1 Behavioral Modification with Child
  • 1:1 Observation
  • Functional Behavioral Assessment
  • Social Skills Training 
  • In Home Behavior Intervention 
  • In person Academic Support
  • In-vivo training of parents and caregivers to allow families to foster the growth and development of their children in natural settings in day-to-day life.


Charlie specializes in several empirically- validated approaches that are incorporated into each child’s individualized plan. 

Principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) provide the fundamental basis of many  of our intervention programs, however we do not adhere to a strict ABA programmatic approach.

Rather, we integrate ABA components with other successful modalities such  as CBT(Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy), along with some popular parenting, emotion- regulation training and social skill training programs.

Our unique approach allows us to provide a highly customized and tailored approach to  each child and family we serve, which allows us to maximize each child’s unique  developmental potential.

We strive to provide these services in a caring manner that stimulates, engages, and  motivates children to embrace learning by addressing their individual needs in their own familiar environments. The specific strategies used in each child’s program will vary  based on their individual needs and abilities. We also strongly recommend families take  advantage of our parent coaching sessions, to allow parents to gain the skills necessary to reinforce  and accelerate their child’s progress in-between intervention sessions.

The overarching mission of our in-home behavioral health services is to build on each  child’s individual strengths and innate gifts, in order to allow them to overcome  challenges, and achieve their maximum developmental, social and emotional potential.
