Additional Information

Dr. Sharna Wood is a SEAK-trained consulting neuropsychologist who has independently practiced in Texas since 2009, although she has worked in assessment since 2001. Her training was primarily in the public hospital system in Fort Worth, but she experienced a wide variety of training settings, including neurocognitive rehabilitation, private practice, and rural outreach. Her professional career includes several faculty and director positions in the areas of psychology and neuropsychology. Dr. Wood’s professional affiliations include the National Alliance of Professional Providers of Psychology, where she serves on the executive board, as events coordinator, and associate editor of The Clinical Practitioner. She is also a member of Aerospace Medical Association, and the National Academy of Neuropsychology. Dr. Wood has two practice locations: Cleburne (near Fort Worth) and Longview (in east Texas), but is willing to travel to evaluate individuals who cannot travel. Although licensed in Texas, she is authorized to work temporarily in states that participate in PsyPact, an interjurisdictional agreement among state psychology boards, including Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Virginia. Several other states also have bills pending. For more information, please visit ( https://psypact.site-ym.com/page/psypactmap ). Typical turnaround time on consultative reports is about 4 weeks, but rush service is available. In addition to private neuropsychology practice, Dr. Wood is also a respected lecturer and researcher, and has assisted major test publishers in data collection for psychological and neuropsychological assessment instruments for over 15 years. She is a lifetime member of American Mensa, and enjoys gourmet cooking, organic gardening, and beekeeping. Testimony list, curriculum vitae, and pricing menu available on request.
