Free 15 minute
for those in Wichita or
the South Central Kansas area
If you live
in our area, we would be happy to discuss with you by phone what is normal for a child your age, what are
warning signs about their emotional future, and whether there are services your child might benefit
from. It is very important that you feel comfortable with whoever may
work with your child, and the free consultation gives you the opportunity to "check us out" without any obligation
or cost. You may find that therapy is more affordable than you thought and that you and your child can
be helped. Even if you don't think therapy is what you need, we're happy to talk to parents briefly and help
them find resources or learn what is developmental normal for children.
How long is free phone consultation?
Usually they last up to 15 minutes, but we are not "clock watchers" and may

A consultation is not counseling and should not be expected to fully solve a

about, and to find out whether we have the services that would be a good fit for your needs. Don't
hesitate to ask us anything about our training, our philosophy, or our personal beliefs that might affect whether
we are the right therapist for you or your child.
