Attachment Center of Kansas

Helping Families Build Stronger Connections

The following links provide a list of attachment focused therapists who are parent recommended: 

Association for Treatment and Training in the Attachment of Children

Attachment Trauma Network 

If there is not a therapist in your area listed on one of these websites, look for a therapist who has 30 hours or more training in the area of attachment and/or trauma and approximately 30 hours of training in one of the following models:  Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Theraplay for attachment and/or Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR for trauma.  Also check out my treatment pages Attachment Therapy and Trauma Therapy for guidelines regarding what treatment should include so you will know what questions to ask when interviewing or checking on a therapist.  

Children must be 10 years old or younger at the time treatment begins.  I also work with any siblings and the child in treatment once primary issues have been resolved to work on relationship problems.

I only work with children in foster care when they are in placement at the adoption home and the adoption an intent to adopted has been signed.

Information is located here.

Treatment cost depends on your insurance plan's coverage of services as well as the co-pay, co-insurance and deductible along with my provider status with each insurance plan. A deposit is required for the first session and is $60.  If you are not going to be using insurance or will be receiving a service not covered by insurance, cost can be found here.

Information is available on the Scheduling page.  

Length of treatment is dependent on the child's age, severity of problem/s, parents' ability to provide the needed in-home interventions and frequency of sessions.
