Sharon R. Thomas, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist

I provide evidenced-based interventions for children, teens, adults, families and groups. Whether it is on an individual basis or as a family or group, I provide therapy and assessment services to preschoolers, children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with a wide range of concerns. Specifically, I have  expertise in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), executive function deficits, learning disabilities, disruptive behavior disorders, anxiety in preschool and school children, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and autism spectrum disorders in addition to work with parents with depression, ADHD, and anxiety. In session, I use interventions such as behavioral parent training, cognitive-behavioral therapy, social skills training, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), executive skills training, and special education services consultation. Additionally, I enjoy working collaboratively with other providers to create positive outcomes in school settings. Futhermore, I also provide evidence-based interventions to adults struggling with anxiety, depression, irritability, and anger.

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2016. In 2013 I was awarded the prestigious NIH National Research Service Award based on my dissertation study examining maternal stress reactivity and parenting children with ADHD. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the University of Maryland School of Medicine Consortium, a postdoctoral fellowship in Behavioral Psychology at the Kennedy Krieger Institute (KKI) at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and practicum training in outpatient pediatric neuropsychology at KKI and Children’s National Center for Autism and Related Disorders.
