Welcome to Diakonos Counseling!
Call our Support Staff today if you are interested in setting up an appointment or if you would like us to call and check your insurance benefits.
Diakonos Counseling has been in the mental health business for over 30 years and has more than 100 years of combined experience between our current therapists. Quality of care is the #1 goal at Diakonos. Our group of professional counselors operate differently than other groups in the Kansas City area--they routinely meet together, strategize together, counsel together and partner together to make sure they are giving clients the highest quality of care possible. Our therapists are great listeners, but they do more than listen. They will listen and then help their clients take positive actions toward fuller, more satisfying lives.
We are a private practice that has maximized personal care and clinical treatment without becoming over-burdened with policies and organizational complexities. This allows our compassionate and professional therapists the freedom to provide patient-driven therapy which generates the highest level of care and proven results. All our full-time therapists are licensed by the state and meet the standards required for continuing education. Our team is a multi-disciplinary group of Licensed Clinical Psychologists, Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Clinical Social Workers. We are committed to providing exceptional custom care and attention to our clients to achieve optimum well- being.
We offer a private and comfortable environment for face-to-face sessions at our Independence office. We also offer Skype or Telephone counseling if you are unable to make it to our office. We specialize in providing care for seniors, adults and children. We believe in a healthy approach to healing life's problems through integrating sound Christian principles for the mind, body & spirit.
Our mission is to encourage people facing emotional or relational difficulties through wise counsel based on Christian principles. We plan to equip and empower individuals or organizations through the use of specific communications designed to bring valuable insight that changes lives. Diakonos Counseling offers compassionate care for those struggling with painful emotions, distorted thinking, and troubling behavior, as well as those desiring personal growth and more satisfying relationships. Our therapists are comfortable and experienced at integrating clients’ religious & spiritual beliefs with the therapy and healing process. Treatment is personalized to meet the individual needs of each participant.
Therapists are available to lead conferences and speak on topics of interest to your church, business, or organization.
If you are not familiar with Diakonos and your first contact with us is online, we would be pleased to hear from you! Please let us know what your needs and questions are. We will be more than happy to help.
Stephanie A. Fidler, Psy.D.
Finding the Right Fit:
Diakonos Counseling believes in setting you up with the best possible therapist to fit your needs. The quality of care you receive from the first phone call is treated with the highest professionalism and confidentiality. Our support staff will take your information and get a brief explanation as to what the issue is you would like to discuss. This information is then passed on to the executive director or president to review and make a decision regarding which therapist best fits your needs. The chosen therapist will then give you a call for a FREE 10 minute phone consultation to introduce themselves and to discuss your situation with NO obligation.
If we feel that we do not have a counselor who can adequately serve your needs, we will gladly join with you in the process of searching our area to help find a qualified mental health professional to assist you.
