Kailee Sharp, MA, MHP
Director of Learning and Development, Therapist
You should never feel hopeless or alone when dealing with life’s challenges. You are worthy of happiness and growth that can come from a positive environment. I believe that therapy should be a safe and collaborative space for anyone seeking services. I see value in an honest and genuine therapeutic relationship that promotes the client’s health and well-being. I chose to become a therapist to assist others through life struggles and to help clients become the best version of themselves. Life is a journey that can get overwhelming at times and I want to provide a space that helps you work through those times by supporting and accepting you for who you are.
I am drawn to narrative therapy, solution-focused, and emotionally focused therapy approaches, which allow the client to be the expert in their lives and incorporate a mind-body connection. I believe that people are social beings that are influenced by the relationships in their lives. My goal is to help individuals, couples, and families develop or utilize skills they already possess, to accomplish their goals. My professional areas of interest and experience include trauma/PTSD, relationship problems, adjustment to life transitions, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, and sexual concerns.
I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Family Social Science at the University of Minnesota in 2019. I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in the Fall of 2022. I enjoy applying the knowledge I have gained through my education and life experience to actual settings with clients. My desire to support others in their life journey is what keeps me motivated to do this work each day.
I am originally from Denver, Colorado and I am happy to call Minnesota my forever home. I live in St. Paul with my partner, Chad and our two dogs. I enjoy spending time outside doing a variety of activities such as camping, traveling, reading, and running. I am looking forward to our work together and most importantly, getting to know your story.
