You don’t say

“If they don’t have Haysville jokes, I’m not going.”

Clinical social worker and psychotherapist Kathy Hastings opens own office

WICHITA — For the first time after decades of working for others, clinical social worker and psychotherapist Kathy Hastings is establishing her own practice.

“I’m a one-girl show.”

Hastings, who does marriage and family therapy and mental and behavioral health, had been at Prairie View for 17 years and Wichita Psychiatric Consultants for the last couple of years.

“When you’re working for somebody,” she says, “… they’re taking 50 percent of your revenue. It was just time for me to get out and be self employed.”

Her new office is in Wingate Riverfront Plaza at 815 N. Waco.

“I face the little Arkansas and central Riverside Park.”

Hastings says it’s a lovely setting.

“It’s a beautiful view,” she says. “It’s a wonderful place to be.”

Hastings is still working on a website, so for now she can be reached at (316) 425-7080 or kathleenhastings@icloud.com.

Hastings says the pleasant surroundings of her new office will be good for her clients.

“Absolutely,” she says. “And for the therapist.”

Janelle King finds new Workroom space

WICHITA — Designer Janelle King has found new space for her Workroom, and it’s remarkably similar to her current space.

“It is just right around the corner from us,” King says of 150 N. Cleveland, which is just south of the southeast corner of Douglas and Cleveland.

Her landlord will be Bill Jackson, who is one of the landlords she’s had at the Domestic Laundry building at 1425 E. Douglas, which is just east of Old Town.

The building owners recently sold to Joe Hayes and his Open Road Brands, which is why King is having to move.

King says Jackson is “very supportive of me and my business.”

“He supports downtown growth and development as well as the local arts industry and local businesses,” she says. “That was a big … selling point for me.”

King expects to open at the Cleveland address by June 1, although she says she may not have the business’ retail space entirely ready to go.

“During the entire month of May, we’re going to do a moving sale,” she says.

Before that, though, she’s going to celebrate the one-year anniversary of her store, which has retail and offers what King calls home tech textile fabrication, such as custom drapes, pillows and bedding.

Case, Moses & Zimmerman partners go separate ways; Moses & Pate LLC forms

WICHITA — Last month, Medical Development Management announced it will be moving into the 6,500-square-foot space that Case, Moses & Zimmerman occupies at the Garvey Center, and the law firm’s partners said they were exploring alternatives.

“Sometimes firms split up because there’s animosity,” Moses says. “That’s not the case here.”

Here’s what they’ve decided: Attorneys David Moses and Chris Pate are forming Moses & Pate LLC. Attorney Linda Priest, who is currently with Case, Moses & Zimmerman, is joining them in the approximately 2,300 square feet MDM currently occupies next door.

Bankruptcy attorney Bill Zimmerman is moving to Eron Law, a firm that has an emphasis in bankruptcy.

“It’s a perfect fit for Bill,” Moses says. “He’ll be continuing to provide his bankruptcy specialty.”

Attorney Mike Case, who has had the firm’s Kansas City office, will be of counsel with Moses & Pate as he transitions to retirement.

“He’ll be working towards retirement,” Moses says.

Attorney Susan Saidian is retiring as of April 11.
