We Are Seeing Existing Clients and Accepting New Requests

Serving Children, Teen, Adult, Couples, and Families

Family Psychological Services (FPS) is the largest private practice in Douglas County and we're continuing to expand, having recently added Lane Miller, LMSW and Rosa Knowlton, LMSW. FPS is owned and operated by Wes Crenshaw, PhD, a Lawrence psychologist with 28 years of experience, including the last 22 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.

Despite our expansion, we are experiencing a record volume of requests right now, due in part to stressors surrounding COVID-19 impacting school performance, family functioning, decision making, and overall mental health. We understand that resources in Douglas County are presently scare and we are sensitive to the struggles this creates, but we receive no external funding and cannot expand our services any further at this time.




Fifteen Providers and One Cat : Now is the Time to Request Services

Over the last two years of the pandemic, we've struggled alongside the rest of the mental health community to meet the demand of a community of adults, teens, and children faced with social and personal disruption. This year we're moving our office into a larger facility and we've hired new staff who can see a vastly larger number clients within our scope of practice. We've waited for months to be able to say "there's not waiting, let's get you scheduled," and finally -- at least for a time -- we can do just that. Especially if you need an after school or evening appointment, now is the time to make your request.

Please read our COVID19 page for up to date information about how we're serving Lawrence in these complicated times. Check back often to see what's new and where we're headed.
