Karen Grace

LPC, LMHC

About Me

I am a therapist licensed in Missouri who has been practicing for over six years. I have experience in working with various range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma/abuse, attachment disorders, substance abuse, sexual issues, and LGBTQIA + populations. I also have experience work with couples and family systems.

My counseling approach is warm, open and interactive. I enjoy working with each client to create a unique treatment plan that will ultimately help each client achieve their individual goals. I believe in coming to each session from a place of non-judgment and warm acceptance for where my clients are in their lives and what goals they are trying to achieve. I incorporate approaches from solution focused therapy, EMDR, narrative, DBT and feminist therapies to create a unique treatment approach with each client.

Seeking treatment is a step that requires courage and when you are ready to take that step I am here and excited to help you on your journey.

Karen is really big hearted and kind, and one of the most supportive online therapists I've met. She sends journal prompts and affirmations every day to us, and she is available on messenger when you have a difficult moment. She really helped me to get over romantic challenges and my relocation into another country. And I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who needs a supportive therapist.

Written by K.R. on May 17, 2021 after therapy with Karen for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and grief

She has been a great help for me when I was feeling overwhelmed by supporting my family through a pandemic, losing three close family members within 6 months and not knowing how to deal with it. I really appreciated having someone to talk to, she never pressured me to open up too much but gave me the space to talk about and experience my grief. She also gave me valuable advice and insights which I am regularly use when I begin to feel overwhelmed or fixated. Thank you!

Being a student in a worldwide pandemic has been difficult considering I deal with both anxiety and depression. My last option was BetterHelp as normal therapy or counselors are expensive and hard to track down with any insurance recently. Speaking with Karen gives me the opportunity to get feedback and thoughts about my pattern of thought when talking about myself. I feel more confident and more validated since speaking with her. It is a decision that made my quality of life overall better. I suggest it to anyone searching for help.

Karen is personable and professional. Provides realistic views of my concerns and allows me the opportunity to voice them in a confidential manner. She gives me the tools to view things from an alternate perspective in order to help me heal and grow

Work with me!
