TAMPA, Fla. (June 17, 2014) — Tampa-based Engage Behavioral Health is expanding its presence in Tallahassee with the opening of a new clinic location. This move makes Engage the only Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) provider in Tallahassee to offer services in an office as well as in clients’ homes and schools.
Engage has been providing ABA therapy services in Tallahassee for children with autism, Asperger’s syndrome, obsessive compulsive disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, anxiety disorders and other behavioral issues in clients’ homes and schools since August 2012.
“The decision to open a clinic was driven by the desire to offer our families another option that may better fit their needs,” said Jennifer Rava, Engage’s CEO and owner. “We are very proud to expand our footprint in Tallahassee and help even more children and families.”
Engage has experienced explosive growth since 2011, with a 192% increase in sales. The company currently has three locations in Tampa Bay, and plans are underway to open two more clinic locations in the area later this summer. Engage is also actively exploring opportunities to expand into other regions throughout the state.
With more than 80 therapists on staff, Engage has more than doubled its team since 2011. The company plans to hire 10 to 15 more therapists in 2014 to keep up with its growing list of clients, many of whom are added to a wait list until more therapists can be hired. Engage is making a concerted effort to recruit the most talented Behavior Therapists, Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts and Board Certified Behavior Analysts.
“We are looking to hire the best and the brightest in our field so our clients continue experiencing the highest level of service possible,” said Rava.
In addition to ABA therapy services, Engage offers psychotherapy services and diagnostic evaluations in Tampa Bay.
