Danyelle Sawyers-Takemasa, BCBA , LCSW
Director of Adult Programming
Danyelle is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Illinois. She comes to us with an 11 year background of working with children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) between the ages of 2 and 12.
While she loves working with children, she was drawn to Behavioral Learning due to our focus on mental health and inclusion of clients in treatment and programming. Danyelle is passionate about helping her clients feel safe, supported, and confident as they navigate and broaden their worlds. As part of achieving this goal, she is a strong supporter of creating and utilizing visual tools and restructuring the environment to help her clients (and herself) achieve goals. In her free time, she enjoys spending time in nature, taking walks and training for half-marathons, and reading.
