About Julie Shepardson, MA

My Approach

My approach is individualized to your needs and personal goals. I use Cognitive Behavioral therapy and other research-based approaches to help you feel better while also teaching you tools and techniques to use to sustain the changes you experience. I will help you discover the unhealthy thoughts and behaviors that sabotage your success, and identify ways to replace them with thoughts and actions that are more productive and more positive for your life. I will empower you to develop a new healthy belief system, thus creating a more satisfying life.

I am compassionate yet direct, insightful, supportive, and challenging, but most of all, fully committed to my clients’ success.

My Education

  • Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business from Florida State University
  • Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina.

My Experience

My training and experience allow me to understand the issues or situations you are struggling with. My knowledge of many styles of therapy and the appropriate application of them, help you to develop new skills to meet your goals.

I also offer weight loss coaching, so if you are looking to lose some weight or to change your relationship to food, call me at 407-696-9909 for more information about how my services can benefit you.  This service is available in person or by phone or Skype, so it’s easy to fit into your busy schedule!
