Dr. Sharp specializes in work with adults with a wide range of anxiety and stress/trauma-related disorders, and also focuses in therapy for mood disorders such as major depression. She heavily emphasizes the use of cognitive-behavioral therapies, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and other mindfulness-based approaches. Dr. Sharp received her PhD from the University of Kansas’ Clinical Psychology Program, where her doctoral studies focused on the relationship between therapist empathy and client outcomes. Her clinical training focused on cognitive-behavioral therapy and led her to gain experiences in assessment and individual and group therapy in a variety of settings including the University of Kansas Psychological Clinic, Kansas City VA Medical Center, and the University of Kansas Medical Center. Additionally, Dr. Sharp’s pre-doctoral internship training at the Central Iowa VA Healthcare System afforded her the opportunity to receive extensive training in the use of empirically-supported treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder including Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Dr. Sharp moved to Dallas in 2016 and worked in a private practice setting providing psychological assessments and individual therapy prior to joining the Dallas CBT Team.
