Developing insight is a process that includes preparation, incubation, the flash of illumination, and verification. Simply put, it takes time, exploration, and knowledge to push beyond problems, challenges, or the traps of assumptions. Another way to think of insight is the identification of contradictions, flawed assumptions, or previously unmade connections. Frequently we operate within a singular perspective and continue to accept realities as they come without question. In this case, developing insight is the attempt to expand your perspective, consider additional realities, and solve problems in a radical way. Regardless of the definition you connect with, insight can be simply understood as knowledge towards situational improvement.
About Our PracticeMatt and Jamie have known each other since their work together in an undergraduate psychology lab at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Over time, the field of psychology has taken them through many opportunities in four different states, seven different homes, and many different work environments to include work at a forensic inpatient psychiatric hospital, smoking cessation within a wellness program, telehealth, and years of behavioral health service in the military. It was their pipe dream to one day open a practice and work together. The opportunity presented itself when Manhattan, Kansas became their forever home.
"We jumped at the chance to develop a practice to serve the needs within the community. We look forward to growing our practice with the inclusion of good friends and great clinicians and truly value the relationships built with those we serve."
