McKee (C.Psych.) received her Ph.D. from the clinical psychology program at York University and is a registered psychologist working in both the Research & Academics division and the Georgianwood Program for Concurrent Disorders at Waypoint.  Dr. McKee led the redevelopment and program evaluation project to transform Georgianwood from an addictions program to a 3-month, best-practice concurrent disorders program.

She provides training in cognitive behavioural therapy and behavioural skills training for concurrent disorders, both for Waypoint staff as well as for clinicians throughout the province.  Dr. McKee’s clinical interests include cognitive and behavioural treatments for concurrent disorders, DBT, PTSD, and trauma-informed care. Her research interests include knowledge translation and implementation, as well as integrated treatment for concurrent disorders, and program evaluation. Dr. McKee was the recipient of the 2016 Distinguished Practitioner award from the Canadian Psychological Association.
