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

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

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