A Little About Emily’s Role

Emily joined Headway in October 2019 and has worked in the human services field since 2013. She has past experience as a child protective services initial assessment social worker, a specialized foster care case manager, a school social worker, and a pediatric medical social worker. As a therapist within our school-based services, she works with children and families in a school setting building relationships with students and families and being witness to their growth and healing. “I get to provide therapy to children and their families in vulnerable times, and help them set and meet goals to improve their well-being,” she says. “My aim is to help kids develop a personalized toolkit of coping skills and strategies to manage big feelings and behaviors, while also supporting and advocating for each student’s individual needs.”

When she is not working, Emily loves to read, run, create art, and travel. She also loves connecting with family and friends.
