so i am teh suck at working on my bike

My left brifter moved everytime i went over a bump, so I tightned it. In fact I over tightened it and stripped both screws holding the brifter... not so bad if it was actually tight, the brifter is still loose, and now its screws are stripped. Is this going to be a big headache? or can the shop easily fix it?
