At Sunflower Recovery, our entire team is dedicated to helping clients plant the seed of a new life. The vision for that process starts with Dianne Seibel-Galliher, MBA, LCMFT, LCAC. As Regional Clinical Director for both Sunflower and our sister facility in Wichita, Holland Pathways, Dianne keeps things humming every day, ensuring that our clinical program continues to meet the evolving needs of every individual client. Meet Dianne, in her own words:
After earning my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Barclay College and my Master’s in Family Therapy from Friends University I entered the world of therapy, child welfare, and — now — addictions. I obtained my MBA with a specialty in Healthcare Leadership in May 2022 from Friends University and obtained my Board-Approved Marriage and Family Supervisor accreditation so I can supervise other therapists while they gain their clinical experience to work in independent practice. I previously held professional roles working with children in the foster care system, with veterans, and with families in crisis.
Currently, I work as the Regional Clinical Director for Pathways Recovery Centers — specifically, Holland Pathways in Wichita, KS, and Sunflower Wellness Retreat here in Osawatomie, KS. I have held a number of roles in my career but my latest challenge has been helping other counselors and therapists be the best they can at their roles. I love to see new therapists grow in their skills and become more confident as they work with our team, which wraps them with support and love to grow.
I live in Wichita with my husband and my therapy dog, Finnley, who comes to work every day with me both at Holland and Sunflower. Combined, my husband and I have six kids and nine grandkids. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling as often as I can, and riding my motorcycle.
I love working for Holland and Sunflower! My favorite aspect of this work is seeing the change in clients as they become alive again and are excited again about life and recovery. Clients walk in feeling defeated and broken, and walk out feeling empowered, with purpose. That is when we know we have found success in our roles.
