P.A.T.H. Clinic and Marstall Nutritional Consulting move to Hartman Oil Building

Wheeler the Healer Hartman at work in his new office.

WICHITA — Clinical psychologist Beth Hartman McGilley, who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders, and nutritionist Kimberly Marstall are moving their practices to the Hartman Oil Building at 10500 E. Berkeley Square Parkway.

The two have been at Lakepoint Office Park at 9342 E. Central for years, and McGilley says they weren’t looking to move.

“I loved it there,” McGilley says. “I had a little office that looked kind of like a tree house.”

The problem is, she says, her landlord decided he liked the space, too.

“He basically kicked us out and said he wanted the top floor for himself.”

McGilley’s P.A.T.H. Clinic and Marstall’s Marstall Nutritional Consulting are separate businesses but work well together, McGilley says.

“We collaborate.”

They’ll share 1,000 square feet. Therapist Angie Hardage-Bundy will use the space part time for individual and group therapy as she’s finishing her dissertation.

McGilley says in addition to a general practice, Hardage-Bundy provides dialectical and behavioral therapy, which is a form of treatment for people with trauma and impulse control issues. She says that can be helpful for people with eating disorders and is a good addition to her own practice.

PrairieFire Coffee Roasters to partner with distributors for nationwide sales

UPDATED — If you’re traveling far from Kansas next year, say, the East or West Coasts or the Deep South, don’t be surprised if you find PrairieFire Coffee Roasters in several new places.

“We should see a substantial amount of growth in our convenience store segment,” says general manager Jeff Deitchler.

That’s because the company is going to partner with distributors nationally to begin selling its coffee, tea, cappuccino and hot chocolate.

Currently, PrairieFire directly serves more than 700 convenience stores in Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. Soon, it also will return to Nebraska.

The company wants to expand further, but Deitchler says it makes more sense to have distributors handle accounts that are numerous states away.

“It would be really tough for us to service some of those,” he says. “These distributors are already there.”

Deitchler anticipates the partnerships will be a huge boon to business.

“We’ll easily double the number of stores . . . by the end of the first quarter,” he says.

“We are having to ramp up production at the coffee roasting facility for sure,” he says of the company’s facility at 18th and Mosley.

“It’s putting a cramp on our warehouse space,” he says of the company’s K-96 and Greenwich space.
