About me

Hello! My name is Chris, and I am a clinical psychologist. I have over 10 years of mental and behavioral health experience working with a variety of populations. I've worked with individuals ages 17 through 95, and with a variety of complex problems. My expertise is working with trauma and bereavement. I am very passionate about working with the LGBTQi+ community. In this day and age, it can make considerable difference having a therapist who is an ally to members of this community - it's my paramount goal to be an ally, and to help LGBTQi+ individuals feel supported and understood. I incorporate a non-judgmental, integrative approach to treatment to help others achieve their goals. My preferred modalities are CBT, DBT, CPT, EMDR, and TMT. I'm honored to work with individuals seeking to improve their quality of life. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Dr. Sheppard is one of the best therapists I've ever had the pleasure to work with. He is incredibly insightful, offers great feedback, and has greatly helped me work through my past traumas and current mental health problems. He has a great balance of incorporating humor into our sessions while still remaining sensitive and thoughtful. I'd highly recommend him!
