Hilya Delband Tehrani, Psy.D., BCBA-D

Licensed psychologist (psy24271)


Dr. Tehrani is a licensed clinical psychologist, child development specialist and behavior analyst who has been providing therapeutic services for children and adolescents for over 17 years. She specializes in working with young children while supporting caregivers to be an integral part of the therapeutic process. Dr. Tehrani has specialized training and expertise in working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and is passionate about supporting individuals with learning differences to live fulfilling lives.

Dr. Tehrani received her Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University and attended the University of California, Los Angeles as an undergraduate. She is also Board Certified Behavior Analyst with experience implementing behavioral change plans within classroom settings. She combines her training as a child psychologist with her behavioral expertise to assist families in setting up evidence-based interventions that can transform the lives of children in the home or school setting.

Dr. Tehrani sees children as self-motivated learners who seek to do their best with the tools they have at their disposal. When a child is exhibiting behaviors of concern or difficulties with learning, it is our job to determine the underlying cause of these symptoms. Dr. Tehrani believes that children succeed when their individual differences are well understood, when they feel secure and connected, and when environmental supports are present to provide scaffolding without impeding autonomy. She relies on the use of scientifically rigorous tools to collaborate with families in developing a plan to nurture a child’s growth and success.
