Our Counselors and Staff

Reigning Grace Counseling Center offers counselors, instructors, and staff who are committed to the idea of “Heart Change for Life Change,” a motto coined by our founder, Julie Ganschow, Ph.D.

Each team member of Reigning Grace looks humbly to God’s Word in answering life’s questions. The team at Reigning Grace does not solely exist for Reigning Grace, but is also actively involved in their own churches and communities. Each counselor is certified with either the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) and/or the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC).
