Our Mission

Empowering individuals with autism and their families through quality ABA services

Our Story

Empower Behavioral Health was founded in 2015 in San Antonio, Texas by a team of dedicated professionals who saw a need for comprehensive, quality services for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. Since then, we have grown to serve and make an impact on families in San Antonio, Houston, Brazos Valley, Waco, El Paso, New Braunfels, Corpus Christi, and more.

At EBH, we believe that every person deserves the opportunity to lead a fulfilling and enriching life. By blending scientific expertise with compassion, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of those we serve, helping them thrive and contribute meaningfully to their communities.

History of ABA Therapy

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach that has been used for over 50 years as an effective treatment for individuals with autism and developmental disabilities by understanding behavior and teaching new skills. ABA therapy is based on the principles of behaviorism, which asserts that the most effective approach to improving the lives of the individual is through objective, behavioral approaches.

ABA is an effective treatment for any individual, and is most often utilized to teach individuals with autism and developmental disabilities. By understanding behavior and how it works within the environment, ABA is an effective treatment for individuals with autism. ABA therapy focuses on increasing desired behaviors (e.g., communication, social skills, academic performance) and reducing behaviors that might be considered harmful or dangerous (e.g., aggression toward others, self-injury). 

Our ABA Program

At EBH, our goal is to help each individual we serve become the best, most independent version of themselves. Our ABA program offers an array of services, including early intervention, communication skills, social skills, behavior management, and more to those with autism and other developmental disabilities of all ages. Our services include:

If you are interested in getting started with ABA therapy for your child or loved one, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us today. We would also love to answer any questions you may have about ABA therapy.

  • People are the heart of our business. We believe in treating everyone with respect, compassion and empathy.

Our Commitment To Diversity

Empower Behavioral Health is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion

Empower Behavioral Health is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture but our reputation and company’s achievement as well.

We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.

EBH’s diversity initiatives are applicable—but not limited—to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:

  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all employees.
  • Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.
  • Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs.
  • Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect.
