Immediate Openings for Children, Teen, Adult, Couples, and Family Therapy

With eight full time licensed, clinical staff, Family Psychological Services (FPS) is the largest private practice in Douglas County and we're still expanding. FPS is owned and operated by Wes Crenshaw, PhD, a Lawrence psychologist with 26 years of experience, including 17 years providing services in Lawrence. He and his associates see a broad clientèle from Lawrence, Douglas County, and the KC Metro. Please browse this website to learn more about our scope of practice and the services we provide.

Medication Management

In tandem with psychotherapy, Family Psychological Services offers state-of-the-art medication management, emphasizing interdisciplinary collaboration, ePrescribing, convenient client access, and empirically valid protocols. We provide a strong face-to-face relationship with our medication clients in an unrushed, accessible, and consistent atmosphere you can count on.

Our Nurse Practitioner, Kelsey Daugherty, DNP practiced at the masters level for two and a half years at Family Psychological Services before completing her doctorate in May 2017. Dr. Kelsey practices under protocol with Lawrence physician Ryan Neuhofel, DO MPH. She is available four days a week, Monday thru Thursday. She offers two one-hour Walk-in Medication Consults on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The first is from 8:00am to 9:00am and the second from 5:00pm to 6:00pm (note that major holiday hours may vary, follow Dr. Kelsey on twitter @KelseyDNP for live updates). Kelsey is usually in the office on Tuesdays, but she does not have a walk-in consultation that day. These consultations have proven very popular, so come at the beginning of the hour to get your place in the queue. All walk-in clients must have an open chart at FPS, be stable on medication or need only minor changes in dosage which can be completed in a 10 to 15 minute appointment. Clients are seen on a first-come first-serve basis. Walk-ins are not available for non- or new clients or those whose medications are not yet stabilized.

Kansas City and Topeka

We welcome KC Metro and Topeka 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 to distant parts of the metro. From Topeka it's less than thirty minutes. For those in southern Johnson County, the Lawrence Southeast Traffic-way now makes travel via K-10 to Iowa Street much easier, faster, and safer.
