About Dr. Melissa Sharp & Associates

Dr. Melissa Sharp

Dr. Melissa Sharp

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.

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 specialize in treating adolescents and adults with anxiety, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, personality disorders, stress, anger, self-injurious behaviors, and trauma.

~ "When I went to see Jill, I couldn't sleep at night and was very depressed because of old memories. After a session of Rapid Resolution Therapy, I am a pretty happy person." -P.C.

~ After a session of Rapid Resolution Therapy: "Jill made me feel extremely comfortable. I feel 'free' from an emotional burden. " -Emily

~I've been a client of Dr. Levinsky for the last few months. I've been very impressed with her professionalism, skills, and honesty. She's been extremely helpful in working with me to get through this tough patch in my life." - Mike
