What's New

Our 2018 School Supply Drive is on!

Help us stock 200+ backpacks to disperse to kids in need throughout the Twin Cities – and help them feel confident and ready for their school year. 

You can donate via Amazon, or drop off wish list items at our Richfield or Golden Valley locations.

All donations are greatly appreciated and truly help kids start the school year off right! 


“Three things in my life saved me from going down a path of misery and depression:  my mother, God, and the staff (at Headway)…With each struggle I face now, I am filled with the courage and skills to take a healthy approach to fixing whatever it is that is I am having trouble with.”

Ashley has worked in the human services field since 2004 including working at Headway from 2011 to 2013 in the Vision Therapeutic Classrooms program before moving to Chicago for a few years. She returned to Headway in August, 2016 and is excited to work with children within the school system as it allows her to reach her clients in multiple environments and approach mental health more holistically. She has training in multiple therapeutic approaches, including trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, and play therapy, but also finds many positive outcomes using a solution-focused and strengths-based approach. “A child’s spirit is captivating and I love providing opportunities to promote mental and emotional well-being for a successful future for them,” she says.

In her free time, Ashley enjoys spending quality time with her family, friends and her puppy. She also enjoys being outdoors whenever possible, playing games, and constantly pursuing the best Sushi!
