A Little About Mary’s Role

Mary joined Headway in September 2019 and has worked in the human services field since 2014. She has experience working primarily with children aged four to 13 and their families, and has competencies in play therapy, Prepare/Enrich, and The Ultimate Journey. As a therapist within our Vision program, she works with school-aged children to assess mental health issues and help them work on anything causing them to struggle with success in school. “I work on breaking down stigma about therapists and creating an environment where students want to spend time with me,” she says. “Building strong relationships with school staff, along with offering my support and empathy as a former teacher are also keys to success in my position.”

When she is not working, Mary enjoys attending sports, choir, and theater events in support of her son. She has also managed Apple Valley Youth Football for the past three years. She sings and plays keyboard at two Lakeville churches, teaches piano and voice lessons plays oboe, and loves to travel to Colorado to visit her sister.
