More About Melissa Norland-Shepard

Clinical Interests:

I enjoy working with clients on adjustment issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, attention/focus problems, communication skills, relationship problems, and a myriad of other stressors. I like to think of myself as a partner working with my client to help them write a better story.

Clinical Approach:

Adlerian therapy, DBT, mindfulness approaches, trauma-informed therapy, Interpersonal & Social Rhythms Therapy, and polyvagal techniques.

Hobbies:

In my spare time, I focus on intentional time with friends and family, being outside, and staying active (especially all three at once). I enjoy cooking, reading, and engaging in creative expressions, like crafting and music.
