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. LGBTQ+ individuals have been a large part of my experience over the past 3 years.
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 regularly during the week and will respond as quickly as possible!

Written by M.I. on Jun 10, 2021 after counseling with Angela for 2 weeks on issues concerning grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

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.
