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.

Prairie Village Office CLOSING July 2016

Family Psychological Services has served the Kansas City Metro from our office in Prairie Village since 2014. As we continue to expand in Lawrence we've found ourselves stretched too thin. We also have too many of our Lawrence clients coming to Prairie Village just to be seen.

Since our lease is set to expire in August 2106, we've decided to consolidate and expand our operations in Lawrence.

You can still come see us in Prairie Village through July, but thereafter clinical services will only be offered in Lawrence. We also invite residents of the Kansas City Metro to make the short drive to Lawrence to begin services at Family Psychological Services.

FORENSIC SERVICES will still be offered in Johnson County using contracted office space. Please contact our office for availability.
