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."

Cassy has been with Headway since August, 2018 and has worked in human services since 2014. She has past experience in politics lobbying for changes in policies concerning youth and youth engagement. She has also worked as a Trauma Support Specialist, Legal Advocate Intern, and served on the Minneapolis Youth Congress Health Committee. As Plus Case Coordinator, she works with children and adolescents and their families in an educational setting, and has competencies in DBT, victim services, trauma-informed care, working with LGBTQ victims, youth facilitation and development, psychological first aid, and crisis management. She says, \"I want youth to feel heard and understood. Often young people are not brought to the table to solve the problem that they are facing, and I am excited to help to do that with my clients. Being brought to the table makes people feel empowered, and that is something that will inherently strengthen the community that youth belong to.\"

In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing, watching TV, and hiking with her dog. She also volunteers with some nonprofit organizations.
