About me

Hello! My name is Shantelle and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri and Kansas. I have been working in the mental health profession for over 15 years. I enjoy working with people and enjoy seeing others smile while trying to figure out this thing called life. I believe change only comes when we learn how to be comfortable being uncomfortable. As the saying goes, change does not come from old comfort zones. I believe therapy allows you to share your deepest, darkest secrets, allows you to be vulnerable and provides a judgement free space. I wholeheartedly believe in meeting people where they are and supporting them along their life journey. Allow me to help you put your pieces back together, one by one. Together we can work to restore peace, restore hope, restore joy and restore YOU!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Shantelle Wells. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I’ve worked with Shantelle for over a year and a half now, and I am so pleased with my progress in therapy. She empowers you to achieve your goals on your own terms, and you can tell that she cares about the work she does, always going above and beyond, remembering personal details, and centering sessions on what you want to prioritize. I shopped a lot of therapists before Shantelle, but I have never regretted my decision to stay with her and “trust the process.”

Working with Shantelle over the last year has been so beneficial! She is just the right therapist I needed to help me open up and really invest in the process of becoming a better version of myself. I had a bad experience with a previous therapist that almost made me give up on therapy, but giving Shantelle a chance was a GREAT decision! Through patience and persistence, she has helped me heal and grow beyond my expectations. Even after my season with therapy has come to an end, I will always have a great appreciation for Shantelle and her dedication to helping others!

Shantelle is excellent at what she does! She really listens and helps talk you through your thoughts and feelings. She is very easy to talk to and I really appreciate her!

Working with Shantelle has been great. I struggled with the idea of trusting a counselor, and Shantelle made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. I have been struggling with a lot of things over a long period of time. I have spent many years not in a very good place mentally and emotionally, but I am slowly seeing hope and a better life ahead of me. I don't know if I could have started to do that without Shantelle's help. If you are waffling with the idea of therapy, I encourage you to give it a try. It will change your life!
