Dr. Sheperd has a B.A in Music, an M.Ed in Mass Communication, an M.Ed in Counseling and a PhD in Counseling. He has worked for over 40 years with people dealing with all types of crises including substance abuse issues, coping with chronic and terminal illnesses, losing loved ones to illnesses, murder and suicide.
Dr. Sheperd’s overriding goal is to help people who are struggling with life find ways to rekindle their heart, spirit and mind and rediscover the passion in their lives. He has been doing this for many years through counseling, speaking, writing and composing music. He believes that just trying to manage your stress is a mistake. This puts us in a constantly “reactive” mode instead of a “proactive” one. It’s more important to
rekindle your heart and your spirit. It’s important to see your own power.
