About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Missouri. I have ten years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings, including residential, acute inpatient, in home, and in schools. I have the most experience working with children, teens, adults, and families experiencing anxiety, major life changes, and trauma/abuse history. I also have experience working with intellectual disabilities, depression, and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
My passion for the field comes from working with others to help them become the best version of themselves. I always tell my clients that I am walking alongside them in their journey-not leading the way. I firmly believe that we are all the experts on ourselves and I work hard to meet clients where they are on their own journey.
My style could be described as caring and validating, with a holistic approach. I am warm, supportive, and down to earth. I enjoy sharing mindfulness skills and other calming strategies as well as communication skills. I believe in practicing skills and promoting confidence in individuals. I believe that gaining positive views of self, practicing skills, and working through any sort of trauma takes time to heal and I want to be able to help you in any way that I can.
I have some odd availability hours to assist clients who are looking for less traditional options. I check and respond to messages throughout the day during the week and will respond as quickly as possible!
**I am currently accepting new clients for live chat and phone calls only! I will not be doing video calls for any new clients at this time. If you prefer video sessions, I may offer these again at a later time. I apologize for any inconvenience.**

Angela Sheffler has been a great counselor. I feel heard, and I also am happy Angela is the type of counselor that engages in dialogue, asks questions, and offers helpful suggestions.

I have only spent a short time with Angela and for the most part, she is working with my daughter. That being said, her responsive is far more than my expectations were. I know I can be confident in how she responds to my teen watching how fast she responds to me. I think we both have a good grasp on the confidentiality bewteen my teen and her, but she hears me and finds creative ways to draw out new information and make my teen feel more comfortable opening up. So far so great!!
