"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."

Elsa joined Headway in January, 2020, and has worked in the human services field for over 10 years. She has past experience working as a behavioral therapist, special education paraprofessional, personal care attendant, mental health practitioner, and clinical trainee. As a mental health therapist within our school-based program, she works within a school setting. She enjoys being part of the team, working with children and adolescents and their families, and being a part of the school environment. "Each opportunity to work with clients has strengthened my resolve to serve children and their families with a growing depth of compassion and skill, advocacy and empowerment, respect and encouragement, playfulness and intentional growth," she says.

When she is not working, Elsa enjoys yoga, coloring, DIY projects, refinishing antiques, scrapbooking, reading, and cleaning/organizing.
