Amanda Babbitt
Clinical Director, BCBA
Amanda Babbitt is the Clinical Director of Bridging Worlds Behavioral Services in Humboldt County, CA. She is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and has worked with developmentally disabled people and their families for nearly 2 decades. She entered the field of ABA at the age of 19 when she started working in a group home for autistic boys. This is where her heart-centered journey began. Amanda is passionate about amplifying the client’s true voice and supporting the whole family by bringing strengths to the surface. She launched the second branch of Bridging Worlds in 2022 in Arcata, CA where she resides. Amanda is endlessly curious. She finds joy in building connection through community. You can find her in the garden, romping along the redwood coast with her dogs, or in the kitchen baking up some vegan treats to share.

Careers with Heart.

We’re seeking empathic and heart-centered individuals to join our Arcata team.

For example: 

If the client is nonverbal we might work on expanding their communication skills to include gestures or pictures.

If the client is overstimulated in the grocery store, goals might include short trips to the store with ways to self-regulate.
