Congratulations! Your search landed you on the page of a trauma-informed, compassionate, and affirming psychologist. Hello. My Name is Dr. Dennis McLeod- a proud Morehouse Man and graduate of The University of Florida. My journey has taught me that life is hard and the road to success can be isolating and lonely-especially in settings that lack diversity. This is further complicated when asking for help is frowned upon because of cultural mistrust and expectations. All of this may cause hesitation or lead to unwarranted self-appraisal when you should be- instead- celebrating your accomplishments, strength and resiliency!
You deserve the gifts that therapy offers. My role is to help you challenge the sea of negative voices and those self-critical tapes; especially those linked to adverse life experiences, trauma, low self-esteem, low self-worth, societal expectations, and legacy burdens. As a “professional blind-spot seer,” I look forward to helping you dive deep and thrive.
I am here to help because, if left unchecked, this can breed Depression, Anxiety, Imposter Syndrome, Burnout and even physical pain. I am passionate about demystifying therapy and creating treatment that meets Black and brown people’s needs- especially those burdened with “Being the First” and constantly told “not mess up.” Reach out and let’s get started!
Q Do you accept insurance?

Unfortunately, I am not currently accepting insurance but can assist clients whose insurance carriers provide reimbursement. Reach out even if you'd like to use insurance as there are still options for many clients to be seen by me

Q How long have you been practicing therapy?

I have been practicing for the past 11 years.

Q What types of special training do you have?

I have specialized training in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) for serving Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Chronic Pain (CBT-CP), and Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy. I also have training in a host of other interventions that we will weave into your work as needed!

Q What's the difference in a psychologist and a psychiatrist?

In sum, it's what we went to school for and what we spend most of our time doing. Psychologists, like myself, hold Doctorate degrees (e.g. PhD), specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health disorders, and spend most of our time connecting with clients to help them make meaningful and lasting life changes. Psychiatrists specialize in using medicinal interventions to intervene on mental health disorders. Generally, you are likely to spend about 50 minutes to an hour/session with a psychologist and be seen weekly and about 15-30 minutes/session with a psychiatrist and be seen far less less frequently.
