Heartspring hires new pediatric psychologist, expands services.
Heartspring has hired a new psychologist for its Pediatric Services program, Dr. Haley York. She will be responsible for evaluations as well as outpatient therapy for children and their families. The addition of Dr. York will make it possible for Heartspring to serve more than 30 additional children.
“We are excited that Dr. York has joined our team,” Heartspring President and CEO David Stupay said. “Not only does she bring an excellent quality of care to the children we serve, but it also allows us to expand our pediatric psychology services for Wichita and the surrounding communities’ children and families.”
For the past year, Dr. York worked at the University of Louisville conducting research on early identification of gifted behavior in under-represented children. She also has experience working in a clinical outpatient setting. Her pre-doctoral internship was at the Munroe-Meyer Institute in Omaha, Neb. where she worked with children in their Rural Integrated Care program. Dr. York has her bachelor’s in psychology from Texas Tech University and her master’s and doctorate in school psychology from Louisiana State University.
Dr. York has been familiar with Heartspring for most of her life and believes that the organization is a great fit for her. She is excited for the opportunity to offer services to children who might not have received them otherwise.
“There are just so many considerations and barriers parents have to get treatment,” York said. “At Heartspring, psychology is integrated with speech, physical and occupational therapy and autism services. We have all of these knowledgeable professionals in one place and are able to help families get the most out of their time and meet the diverse needs of their kids.”
