Unveiling the Curtain of Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners

This presentation is intended to provide an overview of the Board’s mission, composition and various functions. The presentation specifically aims to address three key topics including: a.) An overview of the Board, b.) The Board’s complaint process, c.) Information on becoming independently licensed.


Tobi Zavala was appointed as the Executive Director in July of 2014. Ms. Zavala was hired by the Board in September 2010 and prior to her appointment served in various other capacities. Before acquiring a position at the Board she was a property tax consultant for 10 years. In her earlier career she was the director at a non-profit organization. She is a graduate of Arizona State University where she received a Bachelor of Social Work. 

Her goals for the Board are to maintain the safety and welfare of the public, ensure applicants and licensees are treated fairly and equitably, and to monitor behavioral health and licensing trends to keep the Board aligned with federal and national standards. Her passion is to ensure that her staff and she strive for continual improvement in Board operations. Her commitment to the Board and committee members, the public, and our licensees is that she will enhance our processes and procedures where possible, while maintaining the integrity the regulated community has come to expect from our Board.

Joey Ordonez was promoted to Assistant Director after spending several years as an investigator, senior investigator and enforcement manager for the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners. Prior to his career with the Board, he was a U.S. Border Patrol Agent in Arizona. He received his bachelors degree from The University of Arizona and his masters degree from Western Governors University.
