McAlester Psychological Associates was founded in 2004 and serves children, families, and individuals in McAlester, OK and surrounding areas.

The practice expanded to McPherson, KS with the opening of McPherson Psychological Associates in 2022. MPA offers counseling and therapy services ages 3+. 


McAlester Psychological Associates provides psychological services for those ages 3 and up across southeastern Oklahoma and throughout the state.  We are able to offer telehealth diagnostic evaluation as well as a limited number of in-office assessment appointments.

We are happy to provide referral information for those needing forensic psychological services (custody evaluations, fitness for duty assessments, referral needs involving the court system).  Psychologists in Oklahoma do not prescribe medication, though we enjoy a close, collaborative relationship with prescribing professionals across our area of the state.  We also provide referral information for those looking for therapy/counseling services.

The McPherson office offers a wide range of counseling services for those ages 3 and up.  Our office will serve the community in and around central Kansas with the expertise and integrity you've come to expect from MPA.
