GET TO KNOW your therapist
Christine Sheppard, LCPC
Hi! I’m Christine.
HOW I HELP
I’m a feminist therapist with a person-centered focus, so you know I’ll be a respectful listener with a sense of social context. CBT and DBT are my go-to sources for coping skills. I’m committed to being able to explain any skill three ways: verbally, visually, and through role play. I’m going to try out anything I’m asking you to do first!
I want to be there alongside you, whatever kind of help you’re looking for. You are the expert in your life, and I have the special training that can work like a treasure chest of tools for better living. The best and first tool is listening: I’m going to listen to you with my ears and my heart, so that I can become your fellow traveler. I’m going to encourage you to imagine a new story about your life, one that notices your strengths and victories while also mourning loss and respecting traumatic experiences. Together, we can build a new sense of purpose and hope.
PATIENCE & COMPASSION
TRANSFORMATIVE INNER WORK
- People who are questioning their place in the world, wondering about their gender and sexuality, are especially welcome with me. If you want to reduce emotional pain, we can dig into internal work; if your own behaviors and responses are causing trouble, we can practice coping skills that are transformative.
