Welcome to the Ampersand Clinic

We are a network of specialized practitioners founded by Dr. Ashley Heintzelman to treat eating disorders, trauma, grief, and general mental health concerns. 

Now Accepting New Patients

Is the Ampersand Clinic right for me?

What leads us to need counseling? It can be wear-and-tear of constant stress, trauma, an eating disorder, mood issues, loss, relationship troubles, or any combination of factors. Any of these problems are often debilitating. Maybe you aren’t even sure what is causing your distress.

Any concern that gets in the way of taking great care of your own health is the perfect subject with which to begin counseling.

The Ampersand Psych Clinic’s providers believe that good health comes from a balance between our mind, body and environment. You and your clinician will work together to help improve any issue that keeps you from feeling your best.

We are located in Overland Park, KS and serve the Kansas City metro area.

Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine is an approach to treatment that puts YOU at the center and addresses your emotional, physical, mental, social, and environmental influences that affect your health. The Ampersand Psych Clinic will employ the most appropriate empirically validated treatments based on your needs. A personalized strategy will be implemented that will take into account your unique presenting concerns and circumstances.

Your provider will work closely with specialists from other scientific disciplines (e.g., nutritional therapists, primary care physicians, psychiatrists, grief specialists, etc.) to form a multidisciplinary team that will collaboratively help you regain and maintain optimal health.
