A therapist from Hillsboro has joined with two former coworkers in founding a new counseling enterprise in McPherson.
Joyce Kyle, Hillsboro, is a partner with Linda Helmer and Sharon Stevens in Client Centered Counseling, located on the second floor above the McPherson Travel Agency at 105 E. Kansas.
The three women had been working as therapists in the McPherson office of Veridian Behavior Health, owned by Salina Regional Health Center.
The McPherson office was marked for closure, effective Oct. 1, because it wasn’t producing sufficient revenue, Rempel told the Salina Journal. The action was one of several efficiency measures taken recently by Salina Regional.
The new enterprise, which opened its doors Oct. 1, continues to offer individual and family therapy, DUI assessments and outpatient alcohol drug treatment, play therapy, marital counseling and alcohol, drug and anger management for the court system.
The company is considering expanding into a more holistic approach that is less traditional—possibly massage therapy, yoga and eating-disorder treatment, according to Rempel.
