Her areas of expertise include individual, family and group psychotherapy, psychological assessment with adults and adolescents, and practitioner clinical supervision. She specializes in working with teens and adults who struggle with many mental health challenges including depression, anxiety, relationship conflict, terminal illness, complicated grief, chronic pain, autism spectrum disorders, and other disabilities that interfere with daily living.

In her work with adolescents and adults struggling with the social and emotional challenges of autism spectrum disorders, Dr. McLeod helps people identify the ways that this particular way of being in the world is both a strength and a challenge, and then identifies specific skill sets that need to be learned.
