Looking for a Therapist?
Practicing psychologists have the professional training and clinical skills to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems. After years of graduate school and supervised training, they become licensed by their states to provide a number of services, including evaluations and psychotherapy. Psychologists help by using a variety of techniques based on the best available research and consider someone's unique values, characteristics, goals and circumstances.
The Kansas Psychological Association provides a searchable list of KPA members who are licensed to practice by the State of Kansas. Listings contained in this section are based on information given by the providers.
