About

Hi, I'm Melissa (aka Dr. Shepard)! Since deciding to pursue psychiatry, I've made it my mission to end mental health stigma, increase access to care and make mental health treatment less scary. If you're looking for therapy in addition to medication management, I work with two incredible therapists who are accepting new clients for therapy. You can learn more and book with them on our website: www.beboldlyhuman.com, or via their Psychology Today profiles: Anita Badillo LCSW-A and Qu'Nesha Sawyer, PhD.
I offer telepsychiatry (medication management only at this time) to NC & MD residents ages 15 and up. I completed my MD at the University of Maryland and psychiatry residency at Johns Hopkins. I have expertise in anxiety, OCD, mood disorders (depression and bipolar disorder), psychotic disorders, women's mental health (including pregnancy), and more.
I have dealt with anxiety and depression and know how hard it can be. But I know that we can work together to get you feeling better, whether that is through therapy, medications, or both. There is hope, and you are not alone!
