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 churches and communities. Each counselor is certified with the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) and the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC).

Suzanne Holland

Biblical Counselor and BC4Women Blog Contributor

Suzanne Holland has been discipling women for over 20 years, first as director of Women’s Ministries at the church where she first met Christ, and later through more informal means, including Bible studies, fellowship groups, and one-on-one mentoring. Upon discovering the Biblical Counseling movement in the early 2000’s, she began her training with NANC, and was later certified as an ACBC biblical counselor. During this time, she also received certification with IABC, and began counseling at Reigning Grace. She is passionate about sharing the truth of God’s Word with those who seek to change. She is especially interested in helping those who struggle with chronic pain, disability, and fear of man issues. Suzanne holds a BA in Psychology, which she earned before becoming a believer. Providentially, this education has prepared her for the many counselees who come with diagnostic labels given them by secular mental health providers. 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.

Sherrie Holman

Biblical Counselor

Sherrie lives in Kansas City with her husband Phillip of 36 years as of 2020; they are blessed with two children and three grandchildren. She has predominately been a homemaker and housewife and has known fulfillment there. A deep love of God’s word has led her to understand that our ability to love
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.
