Family-Oriented Autism Therapy in Seattle & BellinghamA Message from
the Director of Bayside ABA

Tina Tarver, Director
Board Certified Behavior Analyst
Speech Language Pathologist

Tina was fortunate enough to collaborate with a behavior analyst and CBT while providing speech and language services for a child diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The results were life changing for this child and Tina. This drew her to the University of Washington Autism/BCBA program where she connected with Dr. Nancy Rosenberg, BCBA-D. Through their conversations, it became apparent that speech and ABA fit together extremely well and Tina furthered her credentials to become a BCBA in order to expand access to services for children diagnosed with autism.

Following this experience and working in the field with many children and families affected by ASD in the Seattle area, she had the desire and experience to expand services to the autism community in her own practice. Tina enjoys providing a fun and supportive environment for her employees and clients to work, learn, and grow.


Whitney Young, Clinical Supervisor – Seattle Office

Whitney started working as a registered behavior technician right after graduating from Washington State University in 2014 with her bachelor’s in psychology. She has always loved working with kids and found that her core values aligned with ABA as she started assisting children with autism to live fulfilling lives. It became quickly apparent to Whitney that behavioral psychology was what she was meant to do. Whitney graduated with her Master’s in Education with an emphasis in Applied Behavior Analysis from Arizona State University and became a BCBA in February 2022. Whitney currently lives in Seattle with her husband and two small children. Whitney loves seeing the children she works with grow to become more independent as they gain skills that open their world.
