Our mission at Budding Behavior Therapy is to provide a service to children AND families in a way that leads to success. To give families a provider that understands their everyday life and uses that to provide excellent care.

A world where children can BLOOM.
Our vision is to provide clients and their families the tools necessary for success. For all children with Autism to be able to reach their full potential. To bloom.

Inspired by their children with autism, Dwayne and Mariah decided to start Budding Behavior Therapy, an ABA company.  They take pride in their ability to relate to families and the difficulties they face on a daily basis.  Being both providers and consumers of ABA therapy allows for a unique perspective of the needs of children and families as they navigate the ABA world.

Unfortunately, Dwayne passed away in January of 2020. He was a dedicated husband and father to their children. Mariah continues their vision with the mission to provide a warm and exciting environment for children with autism to laugh, play, and learn.

Mariah Harrison

My name is Mariah and I am a Behavior Analyst that has been working with Autistic children for the past 10 years. During that time, my late husband and I had a son and daughter who were both later diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. With my clinical knowledge and our personal experience parenting Autistic kids, we decided to open our clinic – Budding Behavior Therapy.

Our mission is to provide high-quality, effective and reliable services to our clients. Our experience as parents allows us to truly understand the needs of our families and the unique lives that they lead. We have been through many of the same ups and downs that a great deal of families face, allowing us to provide support in a more personal way. Though my husband is no longer with us, our mission still stands and I continue to pursue excellence for our clients.
