What People Say About Dr. James Shepherd Jr, PHD

It's odd reviewing a psychologist because I see it as very personal; they need to be the right fit for you. Dr. Shepard is the right fit for me. He can take me from sobbing and not knowing where to start, to laughing and feeling like I can take on anything. He's so easy to talk to that I actually tell people it's like talking to my best friend who I can tell everything to, but with much better advice.

I’m 50-50 with this psychologist. I think he means well, but he insulted me a few times when I was with him. He questioned and giggled at my education, what I do for work... seemed a bit ignorant and non-caring. I think he is more well suited for people who have serious disorders. Not for people with little problems here and there. Shuts you off when you discuss other people to him and how they impact you.

Dr. Shepherd is very kind and intuitive. He works with young children really well using play therapy and discussing things with them at their level. The receptionist is very professional.

It took years to find a psychologist that I feel is actually making a difference in my mental well-being. Dr. Shepherd is extremely knowledgeable, caring, trustworthy, and easy to talk to. I feel hopeful after our visits and am always eager to return. Highly recommend.

I felt very comfortable with Dr. Shepherd from our very first meeting. He is very genuine in his listening and his interpretations. I am learning a lot about myself and feeling a lot better, too!
