About Us

Emerge was founded in 2005 by Dr. Helena Huckabee, Ph.D., BCBA-D. Recognizing a critical need in Colorado for excellence in counseling, diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Huckabee drew upon her years of experience in autism and neuroscience to establish a practice offering multi-disciplinary services suited to a diverse set of needs.

The Emerge treatment model for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders utilizes the science of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) and incorporates a variety of proven techniques such as Incidental Learning, Pivotal Response Treatment, and Verbal Behavior. Our goals and strategies are individually tailored to each client, maximizing cognitive, social and emotional growth while supporting the family’s needs, lifestyle, and interests.

Emerge also specializes in behavior management, mental health, and personal growth across the lifespan. We approach these challenges with the same sensitivity, scientific knowledge, and commitment to each one of our clients and their families.
