Emily Gustafson, MSW, LGSW - Mental Health Therapist


A Little About Emily’s Role

Emily joined Headway in August, 2020, and has worked in the human services field for over 10 years.  She has past experience as a therapist, unit manager, and youth counselor and has a competency in psychodynamic psychotherapy.  As a Mental Health Therapist in our school-based program, she works with children, adolescents, and families in a school setting providing individual and family therapy.  She also works with school staff to provide services and training to staff and group therapy to students.  She says, “I am energized by working with children, adolescents, and families, and I am so excited by the work that Headway does within schools to support kids and their families”.

When she is not working, Emily loves to travel, and has studied and lived overseas in Mexico, China, Vietnam, and Ireland.  She likes to spend time outdoors in northern Minnesota where she learned to waterski and wakeboard, and also loves to read.
