Exciting Expansions in 2017 to Better Serve Lawrence & Douglas County:

Family Psychological Services (FPS) is owned and operated by Wes Crenshaw, PhD, a Lawrence psychologist with 25 years of experience, including 16 years providing services in Lawrence. He and his six associates see a broad clientèle from Lawrence, Douglas County, and the KC Metro. Feel free to browse this website to learn more about our scope of practice and the services we provide.

We've recently added Annas Boyer, LSCSW, LCAC to our staff and will be developing a full time caseload as we move through the rest of the year. Annas brings to FPS her extensive exprience treating adults, including those with subtance abuse issues. This is the first time we've offered services to a broad range of adult clients in the Lawrence community and we welcome Annas to our growing team. We'll announce another new, full-time clinician later this month, enhancing our capacity to treat eating disorders in teens and adults.

FPS is now operating out of both Suite A and C of the 2601 West 6th Building and will expand further in mid-2017. PLEASE NOTE: We recently moved our business office from Suite A to Suite C to facilitate that expansion. New clients please come to Suite C at your first appointment. We have a sign in front of Suite A directing you to the busines office if you need to check in.

In tandem with psychotherapy, Family Psychological Serivces offers state-of-the-art medication management, 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.

Kelsey Daugherty, APRN completes her doctorate in nursing practice in May and will move from part- to full-time practice in June. She'll add an extra day in April as a transition, seeing FPS clients now on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Kelsey will also begin offering an 8:00 am Walking-in Med Consult for existing clients each morning she is here. These hours will be on a first-come first-serve basis and are intended to allow Kelsey to do refills and minor changes for our existing clients. Walk-ins are not available for non-clients or clients whose medications are not yet stablized.

Immediate Availabilities for Adolescence and Adult Clients. Our staff expansion has allowed FPS to eliminate our waiting list for teens and adults through the end of 2017. However, established staff have less availability due to ongoing caseloads. Service requests for children may still require a wait, particularly for evening appointments. Request an appointment now for our new or established staff. Some therapists still have openings, while others are full. The more flexible your time and desired therapist, the quicker we can get you in.

Remember, FPS is busy for a reason. We invite you to find out why.

Constantly Enhancing Our Services to Clients
and the Community

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 to enhance our services to those seeking relationship therapy. Dr. Wes was recently certified as a Sex Therapist by The American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). Alisha Saucedo is just beginning her training in sex therapy. In November, Wes attended a four-day intensive workshop on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Tampa Florida and has begun using this model with his clients. Adrian Zelvy just returned from a training on Parent Coordination and is now offering extended services in co-parenting consultation for cases of divorce and custody.

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

To Request Services

We're working to make our intake process as seemless and quick as possible. Please click the button below to request information on how to set up an appointment. You'll be asked to provide a little information about your situation on a form that will be securely submitted through to our office manager. If the therapist you request is not available to take new clients, we'll ask another member of our staff to reach out. After reviewing this form, we'll guide you on how to complete your intake paperwork and get you scheduled. Thanks!

Ask About Services


Kansas City Metro

As we expanded in Lawrence we found ourselves stretched too thin and have closed our Prairie Village office. We welcome KC Metro clients and see quite a few of them. Our Lawrence office is about four minutes off Exit 202 on the Kansas Turnpike (I-70). From some parts of Kansas City, it's a quicker drive to Lawrence than it was to Prairie Village. For those in southern Johnson County, the Lawrence Southeast Trafficway makes travel via K-10 to Iowa Street much easier and safer.
