Dr. Gary Hackney - practicing clinical psychologist in Wichita, KansasUsing the term Christian Clinical Psychologist is usually considered an oxymoron. The profession of Clinical Psychology is seen as one of the least religious professions and within psychology, clinical psychologists are seen as the least religious professionals. Despite this, a few of us have broken away from that mold and put our spirituality first.

As a Born Again Christian, a husband, a father and then a clinical psychologist, I bring to my clients a unique combination of training, experience, practical living and spirituality to help them deal with life's difficult situations. With my speciality trainings in the areas of marriage and family, child psychology, and human sexuality, I dealt with with the difficult issues of child abuse, sexual abuse, and the resultant court work. I also deal with marriage and family issues such as marriage counseling,Gary and Mitzi Hackney divorce issues and custody issues.

As a Christian Clinical Psychologist I also specialize in individual psychotherapy working with individuals trying to find their way through this difficult world. What follows is my resume which I placed on this web sight in order for you to examine my educational background and professional experience to better help you make a determination as to whether or not I can be of benefit to you and your loved ones.

Our office is unique as my wife, Mitzi, is the Business Manager. Very few couples could work together in a business, however we have done so throughout out careers and have really enjoyed it.
