"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."

Paula joined Headway in December, 2019, and has worked in the human services field for over 20 years. She has prior experience working at another local nonprofit organization with children, adolescents, and adults. As a Mental Health Therapist within our school-based services, she works in a high school setting; she loves the school environment and enjoys getting to know the students and learning how to best help them with challenges they face. "I love being able to help individuals and families," she says. "Students experience various stressors and I believe that school therapists can help lessen the impact that those may have."

When she is not working, Paula spends a lot of time watching her daughters at different sporting events.  She also enjoys downhill skiing, reading, and going to musicals.
