Dr. Sharleen McDowall,
Psy. D., C. Psych.
Clinical Director | Registered Psychologist
My love for psychology has been with me since I can remember. Someone once told me to look at my bookshelf and it will reveal what I’m most passionate about. In doing so, I realized that I loved psychology, nutrition, fitness, and spirituality. Twenty years later, guess what I still enjoy reading? Yes, that’s correct —these topics continue to excite me and feed my soul.
I’m a Clinical Psychologist and the Clinical Director for McDowall Health, but I’ve also invested my time to learn about nutrition, exercise to lead a healthy lifestyle, and grow spiritually. During my career as a clinical psychologist, I’ve realized that in order to be happy and to achieve optimal health, ongoing growth in all these areas are essential.
I believe my life is an excellent reflection of an ongoing journey of self-improvement and growth.
For the past 25 years, I’ve been committed to achieving optimal psychological and physical health. It has not always been easy, but no matter what, I am committed and I personally understand the challenges that people face when working towards achieving a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.
My personal health journey is what lead me to decide to rebrand my practice to not only include psychology but to also address the physical aspects of health. I believe that to achieve “complete health” you can not separate the mind, body, and spirit. I believe optimal psychology health equals optimal physical health.
Regardless of the issue, you are struggling with, my practice and associates are committed to helping you rediscover yourself by supporting you during the process of a psychological and physical transformation. We will listen to you and will examine and address all the major areas of psychological and physical health by using encouragement, fostering self-empowerment and personal responsibility so you can begin to own your health and become a powerful force in your recovery.
We are deeply committed to serving you and we are here to offer a compassionate and non-judgmental space for you to share your concerns. It is my hope that McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare will provide you with the comprehensive healthcare that you’ve always been looking for.
