"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."

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.
