Expanding 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.

We've recently added Jennifer Anderson, LMSW to our staff and will be adding long-time Lawrence resident and therapist Tamara Henley, LCPC on September 6th, 2016.

On October 1, 2016 we'll open up additional office space to increase our client capacity by 33%. The fall rush is upon us so don't hesitate to request an appointment now for our new or ongoing staff.

We also 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 Time of the Year. Even with our staff expansion, FPS is heading into the busiest time of the year. Our established therapists have only a few openings and our new staff are filling up fast. If you anticipate that you or your child, teen, or young adult will need services this fall, we urge you to get on our schedule soon, particularly if you're needing one of our limited after-school appointments.

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). Later this year, Wes will attend a four-day intensive (7am to 7pm!) workshop on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy 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.

Ask About Services

 

Kansas City Metro

Family Psychological Services has served clients in the Kansas City Metro since opening in 2012. We opened an office in Prairie Village in 2014. However, as we expand in Lawrence we've found ourselves stretched too thin with both offices. Moreover, we have more clients now driving from Lawrence to Prairie Village because of scarcity of appointments.

Dr. Wes, Kelsey and the rest of our staff welcome Metro clients. Our office is about four minutes off Exit 202 on the Kansas Turnpike (I-70). Many of our Metro clients continued to see us here because, from some parts of Kansas City, it was a quicker drive to Lawrence. With the opening of the Southeast Traffic-way in November 2016, access from Johnson County will be even easier via K-10.

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