Message to clients

It's so helpful to have a space where you can be yourself for an hour each week, and know that you are receiving gold standard treatment options. Shepard Therapy Associates is unique in that we are a boutique practice, providing highly personalized/individually tailored services to a small number of clients. Our therapists have extensive training and certifications that can be challenging to find among many therapists in the community. This includes CPT, EMDR, CBT-I for insomnia, and the Gottman Method. We engage in regular professional development and training to keep us on the forefront of innovations in the field, and offer in-service trainings and information sessions for first responders in the community.

When you receive care at Shepard Therapy Associates, you can rest assured that you are in the best hands, and feel confident in seeing changes in yourself over time. However, we are passionate about ensuring that you reach your personal goals within a reasonable time frame, so that you do not feel as if you're "wasting" time or money, remaining in therapy longer than necessary.
