DR. MELISSA SHARP – Not Accepting New Patients
Hi! I’m Dr. Melissa Sharp and I’m a clinical psychologist. I earned my doctorate degree in psychology from The Illinois School of Professional Psychology in 2001. I specialize in helping clients who have been stuck and unable to change unhelpful feelings, thoughts, and behaviors by using an innovative therapy called Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT) TM. RRT is a cognitive-experiential approach to creating desirable changes in a shorter time-frame than most traditional forms of therapy. In this approach, the subconscious mind is engaged to quickly and painlessly create positive and enduring changes. I have effectively treated a variety of issues such as trauma-related stess (PTSD), grief, panic attacks, anxiety, self-destructive behaviors, guilt, resentment, and low self-esteem using RRT. Rapid Resolution Therapy is designed as a short term therapy. If you are interested in reading more about Rapid Resolution Therapy please see my website page on Rapid Resolution Therapy or visit www.rapidresolutiontherapy.com. I am available for appointments Tuesday – Saturday as my schedule permits. I am in the following insurance networks: BCBS PPO, Aetna, Cigna, Magellan, PHCS, Medicare, and Optum (United Behavioral Health)
RRT has been a great tool for my family. The way it generalizes to other areas is quite amazing and has been so helpful to us all. Having used more traditional approaches in the past and then RRT, I see a huge difference in both the effectiveness and length of time spent in therapy. Thank you Melissa! –L. R.
I just spent a couple of years trying to build myself up to quitting smoking – but one life stress after another kept me from doing it….”Oh this is a tough week coming up,” or “this is terrible PMS, I can’t do it right now.” “Family coming to visit, once they leave” etc. Well last year I started noticing changes and realized menopause was beginning to make its appearance. From stories I’ve heard about other women’s experiences, I thought, “this is going to be several years of ups and downs – I’ll never find a good time to quit.” So I talked to Melissa and not only did she help me to quit smoking (with minimal side effects), she also treated me for anger and dark moods that had really been getting me down. This was over 5 months ago. I’ve waited until now to see how I was doing. I still have a nauseating feeling when I visualize my cigarettes and haven’t returned to that overwhelming rage and depression that I had experienced before. This was after only 3 sessions with Melissa. I truly felt safe and secure with Melissa – there was no judgement – and she followed up with me, making sure that I knew genuine help was there when I needed it. I’m so grateful for the help and support I needed and received. –K.E.
