In November, we added a new member to our Behavioral Health team, Christina L. Menager, Ph.D., LP, psychologist, and she’s hit the road running. Her passion is empowering patients to help them grow and succeed in life.
According to Tristen Winston, MA, PsyD, LP, LCAC, Behavioral Health Director, Dr. Menager’s experience with psychiatric testing will allow HPC to increase access to this much needed service. “Her expertise with children and adolescents is a wonderful addition to our pediatric clinic and school-based health services,” she noted.
“In addition, with past work experience at the VA, we are excited to add her to the team as we serve our military service members, veterans and their families,” Dr. Winston added.
Dr. Menager is a licensed psychologist.
She earned her Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Arts and Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degrees from the University of Kansas, in Lawrence, Kan.
Dr. Menager completed her postdoctoral psychology residency with the Kansas City VA Medical Center, in Kansas City, Mo., and her postdoctoral psychology internship with the Dwight D. Eisenhower VA Medical Center, in Leavenworth, Kan. She served as a graduate health clinician at the University of Kansas Medical Center, in Kansas City, Kan.; as a graduate health clinician and graduate clinical supervisor at the KU Psychological clinic, in Lawrence, Kan.; and as a graduate health clinician at the Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center, in Lawrence, Kan.
In addition to extensive academic teaching experience, Dr. Menager has been involved in multiple research studies – many involving treatment of depression. She has been practicing since August 2019, and she specializes in treating depression and working with veterans, children, and teens.
