Kelley McKeever, Psy.D.
Staff Psychologist
Coordinator of School-Based Services Program

Licensed Clinical Psychologist since 2014

As a practitioner, I specialize in individual, group, and family therapy for the treatment of ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, learning disorders, anxiety, and mood disorders. In my time as an educator, I have taught numerous courses on Adlerian theory and intervention, theory of psychology, and intervention as adjunct faculty at Adler University.

I was selected as a 2009-10 fellow in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) training program, and worked alongside physicians and therapists to complete interdisciplinary training on providing culturally-informed, family-centered care. My training included treating children with autism; administering the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) and Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R); and engaging in advocacy and public policy, while researching effective treatments in autism. I previously was the Director of Health and Wellness for the Center for New Horizons, where I developed an organizational wellness program and personalized health plans for individual employees.
