Dr. Eyman works with children, adults and the elderly providing psychotherapy, psychological testing (assessment of an individual’s psychological functioning), and neuropsychological evaluations (the assessment of brain performance and cognitive abilities). Some of the problems he treats include anxiety, depression and other mood disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder and other trauma, attention-deficit disorder, psychotic disorders, Alzheimer’s, Asperger’s Syndrome, and challenges with life changes and growth. Additionally, he provides behavioral pain management, and he conducts workers compensation and other types of legal evaluations.
Dr. Eyman accepts new patients who call directly to make an appointment, and referrals from physicians, other health care providers, and attorneys. To treat patients, Dr. Eyman uses a variety of psychological approaches that meet the best practice standards and are appropriate for each person and their problems. The treatment may include a brief intervention or require longer-term psychotherapy. For further information or to schedule an appointment, please call the clinic office.
“I know that it is possible for a person to make significant and long-term changes in their lives with the proper care and treatment, and it is very rewarding to be part of that experience.”

Clinical Social Worker
License: L.S.C.S.W., 1996
Certified Diplomate: American Psychotherapy Association
M.S.W.: University of Kansas, 1994

Ms. Krumm has 35 years of experience in helping people. At the Menninger Clinic for eight years prior to joining Heritage, her most recent role was that of Senior Clinical Social Worker in the clinic’s Adult Outpatient Services.
 
Trained as a therapist, Ms. Krumm enjoys working with adults, as individuals or in groups. She treats victims of both early childhood and adult trauma, using insight-oriented expressive supportive psychotherapy, the family systems model, and, sometimes, EMDR. Ms. Krumm is also adept at couples’ therapy, teaching couples how deal with their problems and recognize their strengths.
 
Ms. Krumm is a critical member of Heritage’s multidisciplinary diagnostic evaluation team. Her role is to work with the family, parent, or spouse of a patient, and, in the case of a severe mental health problem, guide the family through the grieving process.
 
“I especially like getting to know the whole person in the context of his or her life, learning about the patient’s family history in depth, and helping them all talk through the issues,” she says. “I’ve seen a lot of people get better and lead productive lives, even when, at first, they did not have hope. Seeing these real gains is very rewarding.”​

Psychiatrist

Among other high posts during his 13-year career at The Menninger Clinic, Dr. Blakely was president of the Medical Staff and head of the HOPE Program, a 24-bed inpatient program for psychotic and seriously ill in-patients. Prior to joining Menninger, he was a recipient of the prestigious Fellowship and Advanced 
Fellowship in Psychiatry at the Austen Riggs Center, Inc., in Stockbridge, Massachusetts (1981-1985).
At Heritage, Dr. Blakely is applying years of experience in general psychiatry, therapy with adults, and treating severely disturbed patients, using medication management and both psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.
Dr. Blakely has extensive experience in working with impaired but functioning professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, and clergy. Also, he is an expert at treating individuals with personality disorders and other difficult-to-treat conditions, including victims of trauma, often very troubled people who have tried several other alternatives to address their problems.
Known for treating his patients with dignity, Dr. Blakely always keeps sight of their personhood. “It’s important to collaborate with patient,” he says. “People may have illnesses, but they are still competent to make their own treatment decisions. They’re still in the driver’s seat, and their opinions matter. I’m there to help them.”

Bette Ferbrache, L.S.C.S.W.
Clinical Social Worker
License: L.S.C.S.W. 1975
MSW: University of Denver

Bette Ferbrache Stockard joined her Menninger colleagues at Heritage in 2006, bringing extensive experience in clinical social work. She has worked with individuals and families in community and military settings, as well as devoting 20 years to providing inpatient and outpatient services at Menninger. Ms. Stockard served as a staff social worker and primary clinician for the Professionals in Crisis program at Menninger, where she provided individual, family and group therapy. She also taught and supervised social work trainees as a faculty member of the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry.
 
Ms. Stockard works with individuals and couples who are dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, loss, traumatic experiences, relationship problems and life transitions. She has interest and specialized training in individual treatment and family interaction. She is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which focuses on developing healthy coping skills for managing intense
emotions.
 
Her treatment approach involves helping people understand current dilemmas by recognizing the influence of past experiences and relationships, and using that information to move ahead in a more thoughtful way. “It’s exciting to help people find their own ability to change. I enjoy helping people expand their understanding of and compassion toward themselves. People often learn they have more options than they realized.”

Ms. Kelly is one of the co-founders of Heritage which opened in May 2001. Formerly Director of Social Work at The Menninger Clinic, Ms. Kelly also served as a Staff Social Worker for over 14 years at Menninger's Partial Hospital Service and its Adult Out-Patient Service.

Ms. Kelly's collegial work in Trauma Psychoeducation for patients and their partners, which focuses on the impact of childhood trauma on the adult self and current relationships, is one of her clinical interests. She assists her patients in achieving an adult perspective of their trauma and finding new meaning for life experiences, using individual, group, or couples therapy, as well as DBT and EMDR as treatment modalities.
 
Ms. Kelly's treatment approach utilizes object relations/system theory to help individuals understand intergenerational relationship patterns in individual, couples and group therapy.
 
"Healing current relationships by understanding the past provides the hope for future generations," she says. "It is satisfying to watch people begin to make the shifts in understanding who they are and how they got there, and to move into new, healthy patterns for their lives."
