Testimonials

"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."

Alex has worked in the human services filed since 2011 and has been with Headway since 2016. During the 2016-2017 school year, she completed an internship with Headway’s Day Treatment program as an Intern Therapist. She has worked with Kindergarten through 6th grade students for several years as an activities assistant, and has mentored and provided therapy services for students in grades 7-12. She is thrilled to be bringing her passion for healing and support to the students and families in her school. “I want to see the students and families that I work with feel empowered, confident, and hopeful in all aspects of their life,” she says.

In her free time, Alex loves to spend time with her husband, both relaxing at home and binge watching tv or out on an adventure. She also loves to go to concerts and hear live music, and sing karaoke.
