Who We Are…

The Louisiana Psychological Association (LPA) is a 501(c)(6) non-profit professional association for licensed psychologists and others affiliated with the delivery of psychological services. LPA is a voluntary, member-based, association with over 250+ members. We are the largest professional organization for psychologists in the state of Louisiana.

“LPA is a hub and a gathering place where we can feel support and camaraderie with fellow psychologists: it is both big enough to bring something new to each meeting, and small enough to feel like a big family crawfish boil.” – Denise Newman, Ph.D.
