Elsa Dumke, MA - Therapist, Anoka-Hennepin
A Little About Elsa’s Role
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.Back to all team members
