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 over 24 years of experience, including 15 years providing services in Lawrence. He and his five 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.

In 2016 we added Jennifer Anderson, LMSW and Tamara Henley, LCPC to our staff, both of whom are developing full time caseloads. In spring 2017 we'll be adding two more Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Workers (LSCSWs) for full time practice with specializations that will lead Family Psychological Services into a broader range of services than ever before including a broader scope of practice for adults. Keep your eyes on this space to learn how you, your family, relationship, children, teens, and young adults will benefit from our growing range of services.

We are now operating out of both Suite A and C of the 2601 West 6th Building and will expand further in mid-2017, doubling again our capacity to serve clients. 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 offer 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.

Busy Once Again. Our next staff expansion should allow FPS to get through the spring rush with little or no waiting list. Don't hesitate to request an appointment now for our new or established staff.

We're 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 model of couples therapy and Dr. Wes was recently certified as a Sex Therapist by The American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). Wes just returned from a four-day intensive workshop on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Tampa Florida.

This is an exciting time for Family Psychological Services as we grow to meet the rising demand 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.

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.

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

Family Psychological Services has served clients in the Kansas City Metro since opening in 2012. We had an office in Prairie Village between 2014 and 2016. However, as we expand in Lawrence we found ourselves stretched too thin and we consolidated our operations in Lawrence.

We welcome Metro clients. 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. The opening of the Southeast Trafficway, makes travel from Johnson County even easier via K-10.

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