Dr. Shanti Pepper

Shanti M. Pepper, Ph.D.

My professional practice aims to address the individual as a whole by incorporating effective treatments in combination with proven holistic interventions.

I am a psychologist trained and/or certified in the highest known caliber treatments for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, personality disorders, chronic pain, sleep disorders, and relationship problems. I am also a registered yoga teacher (RYT-500) and, when it fits my clients’ needs, I integrate mindfulness, gentle movement, and yoga.

I specialize in trauma recovery with adults and, because I have extensive experience in numerous effective treatments, we can take an individualized approach to your treatment. Healing from your trauma may occur through EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), or PE-PC (a brief exposure therapy). I am also trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). My expertise includes working with Veterans, police officers, and those who have suffered from sexual assault/rape, motor vehicle accidents, childhood trauma, intimate partner violence, and work-related injuries.

About me.

I was born and raised in Colorado and currently live in Montana where I continue to be in awe of the mountain west. I enjoy almost all outdoor activities, live music, yoga, travel, and reading.

I am dedicated to promoting an environment of respect and appreciation for all individuals, regardless of race, tribe, color, ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sex, national origin, age, ancestry, physical/mental ability, status as a veteran or police officer, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, and vaccination status. I work with individuals from all backgrounds and beliefs; I am committed to creating and maintaining an atmosphere of openness, trust, and safety where all attitudes, beliefs, values, and behaviors can be freely explored and discussed. I fully embrace providing high-quality and multiculturally sensitive services that affirm the dignity, worth, and value of all individuals.
