“Michael had no long term horizon, didn’t care about anything, was disengaged and had no foundation to start the recovery journey… Today he is a productive senior in HS involved in extra-curricular activities and thinking about college. (Headway) gave us traction, a positive track record of real accomplishments and new beginning.”

Karissa joined Headway in August, 2019, and has worked in human services since 2014. She is currently working on her Master of Social Work degree at the University of St. Thomas. As an intern therapist within our school-based programs, she is honing her skills in mental health therapy with middle schoolers. She listens to her clients and tries to be relationally available to them. "I am a student of my clients, realizing that they are the experts on the subjects of themselves. With this in mind, I will empower them to fight for who they are created to be," she says.

When she is not working, Karissa enjoys hanging out with friends, exploring new cities, doing anything outside, and spending time with her husband.
