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.
