Adult Services

Whether you’re managing a severe mental health issue, going through a major life event, or just feeling “stuck,” we’re here for you. We believe that everyone has the ability to build and maintain themselves from the inside, and to develop resilience to live their life with purpose. We all just need some help doing that sometimes.

Our clinicians are trained in a variety of therapy types and will work with you to create a custom treatment plan that fits with your goals. Our adult therapy services include assessment and testing, traditional outpatient therapy for individuals and couples, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) for self-injurious or suicidal tendencies.

Outpatient Therapy

Our outpatient therapy can help with everything, from managing your emotions to managing severe and persistent mental illnesses. Located at our Richfield, Golden Valley, and Brooklyn Center sites five days a week, our outpatient therapy teams are trauma-informed to best empower everyone to live an emotionally healthy life.

Adult DBT

This program is for individuals who are suicidal, self-injurious, and have difficulty managing their emotions and sustaining relationships. DBT helps people learn to become more mindful of their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors; regulate their emotions and become more resilient; manage distress and increase impulse control; and improve relationships and self-respect.

Assessment + Testing

Psychological testing seeks to understand a person’s strengths as well as clarify the source of psychological symptoms. Results of testing are used to create recommendations that empower our clients to live an emotionally healthy life. We also conduct re-evaluations to monitor progress and make necessary adjustments to recommended action plans.

I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13, and hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.

Headway Client

Michael had no long term horizon, didn’t care about anything, was disengaged and had no foundation to start the recovery journey… Today he is a productive senior in high school involved in extra-curricular activities and thinking about college. Headway gave us traction, a positive track record of real accomplishments, and a new beginning.

Headway Parent

I've worked with Headway for over ten years and the quality of the services they provide to youth and their family has been excellent. The staff genuinely care about their clients and want them to be successful, and they hold their young clients accountable for their behavior.
