I had multiple sessions with Dr. Sheppe, and not once did he leave me wondering in which direction I should head.His responses to my questions were so thorough, accurate, and reassuring that I was able to take the steps necessary to improve my health. He worked closely with me as I navigated some big medical decisions. Dr. Sheppe is highly intelligent, well informed, caring, thorough, and professional. I highly recommend him to ANYONE in need of psychiatric counsel.

About Dr. Alexander Sheppe

For more information, please visit my website: sheppemd.com *Prior to confirming your appointment, I will reach out to you by phone to discuss your needs, and to discuss my practice policies.* *Note that I am an out-of-network provider and do not accept insurance.* PHILOSOPHY The world can be a difficult place, and my calling is to help by getting to know you as a human being with a story. I specialize in child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry — I treat a wide range of ages and difficulties. There are times when the careful use of medication may be helpful and even life-saving — and medication may not always address the needs of the whole person. I can also help you write and rewrite your story with an integration of compassion, common sense, and years of training in a variety of evidence-based psychotherapies. For comprehensive evaluations, consultations, and ongoing treatment, please reach out at the number above. I look forward to learning more about you. EXPERTISE I am board-certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and I have advanced training in the medication management of psychiatric conditions in children, adolescents, and adults. I also have advanced training in a variety of psychotherapy modalities including psychoanalytic psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, supportive psychotherapy, cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and prolonged exposure therapy for PTSD. I have also completed intensive training in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) with Marsha Linehan's Behavioral Tech Company, and I have experience practicing DBT with adolescents and adults. I look forward to learning more about you!

Dr. Sheppe really gets it. He provided me with exceptional advice and recommendations. He was also quite kind and understanding. I quickly discerned that he was beyond an expert within psychiatry. He not only addressed my question and concernsbut explained extremely detailed and minute critical details, in clear and concise terms I thoroughly understood. Beyond any doubt at all, I very highly recommend Dr. Sheppe!

A psychiatrist that does more than merely talk about dosages -- he combines pharmacology with effective strategies on how to get the most benefit from the medication.
