Emeryville, CA – The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence (BHCOE) has awarded Animate Behavior with an Award of Distinction, recognizing the organization as a top behavioral service provider in the country. The award celebrates exceptional behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff satisfaction and qualifications, and consumer satisfaction.

“Clinical excellence is a clear priority for Animate Behavior. This organization utilizes current best practices in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, maintains high standards for staff qualifications, and implements state-of-the-art digital data collection procedures to ensure accuracy of behavioral data,” said Sara Gershfeld, Founder of BHCOE. “It is with great pleasure that we commend the Clinical Directors, Alex Lorenzo and Yaz Aboul, and their team on running an ethical program that is an indispensable resource for the Emeryville area autism communities and beyond.”
