HANNAH WOLVERTON, MS LMFT
Hannah is a Kansas City transplant and has been living in the metro area for the past three years. She loves the Midwest hospitality and loves being a Kansan. Originally from Utah, Hannah came to Kansas City to follow her passion for mental health where she attended Friends University’s marriage and family therapy program. When Hannah is not practicing therapy, she is probably watching The Office while planning her next trip to someplace new.
As a clinician, Hannah enjoys working with millennials—those transitioning into adulthood and those roughin’ it in adulthood. Life is a beautiful, terrifying ride of soul searching and searching for belonging in and out of relationships. Solidifying values and foundations are a core part of that process, and Hannah would love for the opportunity to join you on your journey.

DANENE SMITH, MS LMFT
After a series of life events that propelled Danene to want to know how to help her family, she decided to go back to school to educate herself. Danene recognized that she was not alone in understanding how difficult life can be when we are faced with emotional challenges. Through her education, Danene became aware that her life experiences can be an asset as she helps others navigate through their own challenges. She found the number one thing she needed was someone to listen without judgement and show love and empathy. Danene’s hope is to be that listening ear and show others that they matter.
Danene currently works with Olathe Public schools as a contracted therapist at the middle school level. She has raised five beautiful children, each with their own unique personality and struggles. Danene has volunteered at church and schools and has worked with children, teens, and adults. Danene has driven a school bus, taught swimming lessons, and was a facilitator for KCKPS drug and alcohol program. She also has worked as a Behavior Counselor at KVC and worked with seniors as an assistant.
