Welcome to KPA!
Psychology in Kansas is not the same without you and it is not the same without Kansas Psychological Association.
Together, as a team, we can do more. We are looking forward to another successful year!
The KPA Board is pleased to report a 10% increase in membership over the past year! We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing to work together in 2022 looking ahead to address the needs of psychologists and psychology in Kansas.
It is with great sadness that I share with you all that our colleague and friend, Theresa Coddington, passed away unexpectedly on September 11, 2022. She was a dedicated leader at KPA and in her community. She served KPA in a number of ways over the years and most recently just completed a 6-year term as our Kansas representative on the APA Council. In addition, she was devoted to overseeing the development of students and early career professionals through mentorship and supervision. She will be truly missed. --Jason Malousek, PsyD- KPA President

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.
KPA Awarded Grant
KPA thanks APA Services for awarding the Kansas Psychological Association a Small State Operational Grant for fiscal year 2022.
APA Services is providing $250,000 for Small State Operational Grants in 2022 to small state psychological associations to support the professional needs of psychologists. These grants are administered by the APA Practice Directorate and the Committee for State Leaders (CSL). We received 23 applications requesting a total greater than the amount of funds available. CSL weighed important factors such as each state’s grant history and financial status to ensure that funding was distributed fairly.
