Who we are
Collaborative therapists here to serve you.
Healing requires trusting yourself and tapping into your strengths and inner wisdom. Despite challenges in life, you and your loved ones can grow and thrive. I am a true believer in each person’s innate capacity for, and natural progression towards, healing. My therapy approach celebrates each person’s individuality. My goal is to restore hope, power, and control to you.
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Missouri and a licensed specialist clinical social worker (LSCSW) in Kansas. Certified in EMDR therapy, I use this efficient therapy approach to help resolve overwhelming life stressors. It is my main approach in individual therapy that I often incorporate into individual and family therapy.
Trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I engage families using this effective approach to resolve parenting distress. Trained in expressive arts and sand tray therapy, I incorporate these modalities with children, adults, and families to provide creative opportunities for exploring issues and enhancing healing.
Since 2001, I have helped people from the age of two to 72 reinvigorate their lives. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, knitting, and reading fiction to relax and recharge.

Jane McKinney, LCSW, LSCSW, RPT-S, Certified EMDR therapist
I approach therapy from a humanistic point of view. It is my belief that every person is made up of unique traits that are molded by the experiences they have had in their lives—positive as well as negative. I enjoy helping people find their best selves. I have worked extensively with adults who struggle with addiction, dual diagnosis, and/or the effects of traumatic events.
Upon first meeting, we will complete an assessment and begin building a good rapport with one another. Working together, we will develop a treatment plan and will decide which treatment approach to use. Treatment modalities I use include EMDR therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Interpersonal Psychotherapy to engage in problem-solving. No matter the approach, I believe you are the expert in your life and deserve support and an opportunity to heal.
For self care, I try to spend time outside, walking my dogs or just being in nature. I practice mindfulness and remind myself daily, “There’s no struggle if I don’t struggle.”
