Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor
Andrews & Associates Counseling is owned and operated by Dr. Stephanie Wick, who is a long time resident of the Manhattan area. She is married and lives with her husband and three children (ages 14, 13 and 9). Stephanie was raised on a small farm in North Central Kansas and remains very proud of her Kansas roots. After experiencing a significant loss in 1999, Stephanie opted to change her course of study. She received her Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2005 and 2010, respectively. She is a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist (LCMFT) and Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor (LCAC) in Kansas.
Stephanie tends to work with individuals between the ages of 13-65 on issues related to: Addictions, marital/relationship struggles, anxiety/depression, overcoming fear and finding purpose, military men/women/families and death/dying/grief. She also enjoys working with professionals struggling with Impostor Syndrome and other professional issues. Stephanie believes that optimal mental and relational health is first achieved by establishing healthy habits in the areas of nutrition, exercise, mindfulness/prayer/meditation, and social connections.
Stephanie's goal is that which was identified by May (1983)...to completely experience the client's being--not of his/her symptoms or problems, but of his/her essence as a human being. She believes the basis of any good therapy experience lies in the quality of the relationship between the therapist and the client. Once that is established, good work can be done.
Stephanie accepts Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, Aetna, Tricare and self-pay clients.
