Sharon Sheppard, LMFT-S


I’m a licensed therapist and trauma specialist. From my office in Raleigh, NC, I provide individual therapy for clients with a history of childhood abuse.

Being a therapist is a second career for me. In my early 30’s I went to see a therapist. She recognized the impact of my childhood abuse and offered me a lifeline. We addressed the pain, and though it took some time, I was able to move on to a happier life, not controlled by my childhood pain.

I became a therapist because I know, not from a textbook or secondhand story, that trauma therapy works. I WAS YOU. And now, I have the training and tools to help you heal and move on too.

It’s not an easy process and often takes some time to undo the damage from childhood wounds but it can be done. I see it every day. Trauma therapy with me is interactive. Not a bunch of “ahas” and “tell me mores.” I’m actively engaged as we address the childhood negative experiences that get in the way of you living a happy and peaceful life.

EMDR is my primary tool to help you process your trauma, but I also use Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Trauma Focused CBT (TF-CBT) and Narrative Therapy.

I’d love to work with you or support you in any way I can so please contact me with additional questions or to schedule an appointment.

In addition to my client services, I supervise and train MFT graduate students and provisionally licensed MFTs (LMFTA) as a AAMFT Approved Supervisor and provide digital content for mental health professionals.

I look forward to supporting you and perhaps, meeting you one day soon.
