I 'm Shantelle.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Approved Supervisor with over 18 years of experience in the behavioral health field.

I am called to help individuals restore their mind and move from a state of being numb, confused, and overwhelmed to a life of pure bliss.

One day I decided to stop playing it safe and embrace the path God put me on.

I stopped fearing who I was BECOMING!

I am called to help individuals restore their mind and move from a state of being numb, confused, and overwhelmed to a life of pure bliss. I use the lens of faith, hope, strength, and resiliency along with an integrative therapeutic approach. 

My credentials...

I am a native of the New Orleans Metropolitan area. I graduated from the University of LA at Monroe with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and subsequently earned a Master of Arts Degree in Psychological Counseling at Nicholls State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Board-Approved Supervisor for Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselors (PLPCs), Psychology Adjunct Professor and an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Educator with over 18 years of experience in the behavioral health field. 

I was appointed to a Behavioral Health Taskforce in 2019 and a Community Needs Health Assessment Workgroup in 2020 for East Baton Rouge Parish in which I continue serve.

My experience consists of individual, family, and group counseling; program development and evaluation; administration, clinical supervision, natural disaster crisis management, Coordinated System of Care, Managed Care, Special Education, foster care, community planning and advocacy, education, and training & curriculum development. I presented at a host of behavioral health conferences and Christian conferences.  I provided training to over 2,000 counselors, social workers, nurses, and physicians across the country.

I specialize in treating individuals with anxiety, chronic stress, depression, trauma, relationship issues, low self-esteem, grief and loss, and spirituality issues.

I am passionate about...

Empowering, educating, encouraging and inspiring people through both mental and spiritual health. My goal is to empower and uplift others to use the brilliance they were given so that lives will be impacted around the globe.
