Minnesota Psychological Association Elects Dr. Robin McLeod as 2016 President
St. Paul, MN – January 5, 2015 - Robin McLeod, PhD, Licensed Psychologist in Minnesota, and the founder and owner of Counseling Psychologists of Woodbury & St. Paul, has been elected 2016 president of the Minnesota Psychological Association. Dr. McLeod was elected by the membership of MPA, and will be serving a three-year term, beginning in January, 2015. She will serve as MPA’s president-elect in 2015, as president in 2016, and as immediate past president in 2017.
Recently named as volunteer of the month, MPA congratulated McLeod, saying, “Dr. McLeod brings visionary strategic thinking, innovative ideas, and incredible energy to the MPA board, and she is poised to take the organization to the next level in her presidential role.”
In addition to her clinical work with clients at Counseling Psychologists of Woodbury & St. Paul, McLeod also is an adjunct assistant professor in the Doctor of Psychology program on the Minneapolis campus of the University of St. Mary’s where she teaches advanced doctoral students about the contemporary issues of practicing psychology.
In her candidacy statement, McLeod stated that she chose to run for the office of president-elect of MPA because she believes that MPA is poised to serve all psychologists in Minnesota in vitally important ways in the next few years. “We are living in exciting times to be psychologists. The healthcare marketplace is changing. Technologies available to psychologists are advancing at a rapid pace. Laws and regulations for the practice of psychology are evolving, and the field of psychology is evolving as well,” Dr. McLeod stated. “I believe that now, perhaps more than ever before, psychologists must unite as a profession so that we are on the proactive side of these changes. We need to share resources, knowledge and expertise with each other as we all face changes in what we do as psychologists, and MPA should be at the forefront.”
As she begins her service in this leadership role within MPA, Dr. McLeod’s hopes are that the general public will increasingly turn to MPA for information about mental health, that physicians will understand the added value brought to their patients by addressing mental health issues, and that psychologists will work together to meet the challenges of a changing healthcare marketplace in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Psychological Association (MPA) is a non-profit, professional association for licensed psychologists and others affiliated with the delivery of psychological services in Minnesota. The mission of MPA is “To serve the science of psychology and its applications throughout Minnesota so the interests of public welfare and psychologists are mutually enhanced.”
Dr. McLeod received her PhD from the University of Minnesota, with a focus on counseling psychology in the Department of Educational Psychology. She founded Counseling Psychologists of Woodbury in 1995, and opened a second mental health office, Counseling Psychologists of St. Paul, in the Highland area of St. Paul in April of 2014. Counseling Psychologists of Woodbury & St. Paul are multidisciplinary behavioral health clinics providing counseling and psychological services to people of all ages who are struggling with a broad range of mental health concerns.
