Our Counselors and Staff

Reigning Grace Counseling Center retains counselors, instructors, and staff who are committed to the idea of “life change through heart change,” an adage coined by founder, Dr. Julie Ganschow, Ph.D. 

Each member of the Reigning Grace team looks soberly to God’s Word in answering life’s questions.

Each member of the counseling staff is a ministering servant in their church and the community at large and is certified with the Association of Certified Biblical Counseling (ACBC) and the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC).

We encourage you to take a moment to become acquainted with each one.

God is inextricably tied to our love of our brothers and sisters in Christ and that the fulfillment of the whole of the law (Love God and love your neighbor) is culminated and demonstrated to us at the cross
where Jesus in obedience to the Father laid down his life in love to mankind. She knew then that service to those of her household was no less essential than service to the household of God-the church. As way of service, Sherrie enjoys teaching elementary Sunday school and helping women and children learn essential life changing truth through Biblical counsel. She was trained in biblical counseling through RGCC and is IABC certified. Sherrie desires to please and glorify God and wants God’s best for all His people.

Suzanne Holland

It is a joy for her to shed light on these labels, offering counselees freedom from the bondage of what many were told would be lifelong afflictions. Suzanne has been married to John for over 31 years. They have two adult sons, one lovely daughter-in-law, and a sweet little rescued Chihuahua named Ruby.
