"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

Christina joined Headway in February, 2020 and has worked in human services since 2012. She has past experience working in a day treatment program with children with autism spectrum disorder, and has competencies in play therapy, CBT, and solution-focused therapy. As a therapist within our school-based program, she works within a school setting providing assessment and therapeutic interventions for middle school-aged students and their families to address mental health needs in a client-centered and accessible environment. "I work to strengthen the wellbeing of individuals and the community by providing empathetic, relationship-based therapy to meet the needs of students and families within the school district," she says.

When she is not working, Christina enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, playing the piano, and traveling.
