Expanding to Better Serve Lawrence & Douglas County

Family Psychological Services (FPS) is owned and operated by Wes Crenshaw, PhD, a Lawrence psychologist for over 15 years. He and his three associates see a broad clientèle from Lawrence and Douglas County. Feel free to browse this website to learn more about the clients we see and the services we provide.

We're now offering state-of-the-art medication management for clients seen here for psychotherapy services, emphasizing interdisciplinary collaboration, ePrescribing, convenient client access, and empirically valid protocols. We believe in building a strong face-to-face relationship with our medication clients in an unrushed, accessible, and consistent atmosphere you can count on.

To make therapy affordable, we've opened a graduate internship to provide cost-free services to clients both with and without insurance. By adding graduate students from area universities and post-masters interns, we hope to never turn away another client due to limited staff time while helping clients manage costs. Then, we'll draw from our graduate intern pool to expand our professional staff.

Dr. Wes is training all our staff, new and seasoned, to offer the top-quality service you've come to expect from Family Psychological Services. We're currently learning the research proven Gottman model of couples therapy.

This is an exciting time for Family Psychological Services as we continually expand to meet the rising demand for our services. We hope you'll join us to learn why FPS is where Lawrence families want to be for mental health services.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not affiliated with any other practice in this building. When you come for your first appointment, please enter the door you see in the above picture in Suite A on the far north end of the building. Please check in immediately on arrival. If no one from FAMILY PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES approaches you, immediately call 785-371-1414 and we will redirect you.

Join Us at Our Kansas City Metro Office

Family Psychological Services now serves the Kansas City Metro from our office in Prairie Village. Dr. Wes sees clinical clients there on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as a limited number of forensic custody evaluation cases. Kelsey Daugherty, APRN sees clients on Fridays for medication management.

We take most Kansas and Missouri commercial health insurance. We do not take Blue Cross Blue Shield HMO because New Directions has denied us panel access. We do see BCBSKC HMO clients out of network but the insurance carrier will not recognize those payments. We recommend clients speak with New Directions about this issue if it is a concern.

Currently we have limited availability in Prairie Village, but we're seeking additional high-quality staff to continue our expansion. Keep checking back and we'll keep updating this page.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not currently employ front office staff at the 4200 Building in Prairie Village. Occasionally the door to the 214A waiting room is locked. If that happens, please call Carrie Poe at 913-888-8967. You can park on either level of the 4200 Building, but we suggest you park in the back parking lot on the upper level of the building. That puts you just a few steps from our office door on the west wing of the second floor of the building.
