The goal of our practice is to be the best! We want our clients to know that we are regular, down-to-earth, approachable people. While we are certainly well-educated and continue to develop our skills as therapists, our hope is that the warmth of our hearts will create a safe haven that will empower our clients to create the future that they have always dreamed of living. We work with children, couples, and individuals, and specialize in anxiety disorders, depression, grief and loss, postpartum depression, parenting challenges, marital conflict, and birth anxiety & trauma to name just a few.
In our practice, counseling is not just about healing and recovery, but rather our hope is that we are able to empower our clients to begin to imagine a life that is…amazing! Additionally, we hope that through the course of therapy a new dream will be awakened and a new purpose will be seen with clarity. We don’t over-prescribe therapy. We will work efficiently and creatively within a tight budget, and we love a challenge! If your specific challenge isn’t listed, feel free to contact us. We are well connected with other local therapists, so If we are unable to provide you with great care we will be happy to connect you with another local therapist who can.
Jessica L. Shepard, MA, LPC is the owner and clinical director of Little Love Counseling. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas Wesleyan University in 2009 with a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. Since that time, she has continued to develop her skills as a therapist, seeking to be the very best. She lives and counsels from a holistic perspective, utilizing chiropractic care, nutrition, exercise, and essential oils as effective interventions for a variety of ailments. It is with this in mind that she has begun writing her first book which is due to be published in late 2015.
A note from Jessica:
My clients are powerful, amazing people that allow me to walk alongside them through some of the most crucial and difficult moments of their lives. I am inspired by challenges, seemingly hopeless situations, and lives that are stuck in a rut. There is always a solution; there is always a path toward recovery. Sometimes it takes time, but it is always worth the time and effort.
On a personal note, I am married to the absolute love of my life. He was the single best decision of my life, and he imparts so much wisdom to me. He taught me about what real love is, and I am forever in his debt. Together we have two small children (so far) that we delivered naturally, and free from intervention. This experience changed our lives and as such we believe in and advocate for natural birthing and holistic care for families.
I am truly excited to be a part of this community and look forward to serving your family!
