Stephanie Sheppard Upchurch
Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, MHSP
I believe every patient should receive evidence based treatments which allow them the best opportunity at real and lasting recovery. This means I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure Therapy in treating OCD, Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders and Eating disorders. This allows me to be a very hands on therapist. I regularly take clients out into the community to engage in exposure therapy and behavioral activation which allows me to provide support and encouragement throughout the process. I genuinely believe that OCD, anxiety, depression and eating disorders are very treatable conditions when being treated with effective and active treatments.
I utilize cognitive behavioral therapies including cognitive restructuring, exposure response prevention, habit reversal training, and behavioral activation in addition to mindfulness and distress tolerance techniques. All treatments are chosen on an individual basis and are chosen with the intent to provide the individual with the best chance at recovery.
I provide family education to parents, spouses, siblings, or other primary support person identified by my clients. I believe educating an individual's support system is an essential part of their recovery. I also take the time to engage the family in the treatment process.
