Dr. Lindsay McLeod
Born and raised in Winnipeg, I completed a B.A. in Psychology at University of Manitoba in 1992, and an Honours B.A. in Psychology from University of Winnipeg in 1994. I completed a Master’s degree (M.A.) in 1996 and Ph.D. in 2002, both in Clinical Psychology, at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. My dissertation research focused on shame-proneness.
I came to Calgary in 2000 to complete a year-long intensive internship with Alberta Health Services (then Calgary Health Region), one of the final steps of the Ph.D. My training was well-rounded. I worked with children and families, adolescents, and adults of all ages. I have trained and worked in a variety of settings (university counseling centre, medical hospital, psychiatric hospital, child and family services, community mental health centres, and employee and family assistance program).
After my internship, for 13 years I worked at a community mental health clinic (Alberta Health Services) specializing in assessment and therapy for mood concerns (depression, dysthymia, which is a low grade but chronic form of depression, and Bipolar Disorder), anxiety concerns (phobias, panic, agoraphobia, social anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), adjustment, addictions, and relationship issues. I enjoyed supervising and mentoring psychology interns. I have maintained a private practice since 2003.
I enjoy reading, music, exercise, time in nature, board games, spending time with family and friends, and am an avid animal lover.
