About Me

Hi, I’m Tara Ann Vellella


As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Parent Coach and Mom to 3, I recognized ​the need to gap-services early on in after our move to Maui.

After experiencing first-hand the increasingly long wait times to be seen by ​psychologists on island for a diagnosis, I knew there was something I could do.

As the days tick by that keiki isn’t receiving supportive services in the home and ​community, especially for those under 6 years old, is time that is never ​recovered.

I am on a Maui mission to ease this problem by providing carefully curated to ​you: assessments, strategy, support and plans so your ohana can move forward ​with meaningful days while in the “wait”.
