Headway is here to empower people of all ages to live an emotionally healthy life – including you.

We all have that capability; we just need some help doing that sometimes.
Black Lives Matter
“For many of our neighbors, the pain, anger, fear, and trauma provoked by the killing of George Floyd is an everyday part of their lives. For others, we have the opportunity to empathize and awaken to the cancers of racism, dismissiveness, powerlessness, and inequality. We at Headway must stand together, for one another, to acknowledge, feel, and commit to finding a place for the fear, hurt, and outrage. We must live out our antiracist values and empower all people, regardless of identity.” - Pat Dale, Headway CEO
We believe our liberation is bound up with each other and that we all do better when each of us does better. We are here to listen and support.

Emotional Health During COVID-19
In this unprecedented time of risk to our physical health, we know the emotional health of many in our community is being negatively affected as well. Taking care of our emotional health during times of high stress and rapid change is especially important.
We are currently providing services in person at our three locations as well as through telehealth.
If you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or burdened by the COVID-19 coronavirus or its broader effects, we have expanded our capacity to minimize the wait times for new clients. Whether you want to process current events, learn how to manage stress and maintain your emotional health, or find support to keep your goals in the midst of unprecedented change, we’re here for you.
