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.

I have been working wither Karen (Michele) Grace for a couple of months now and I always feel supported and listened to during our sessions. She is empathetic and insightful. I highly recommend her!

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 Grace has already helped me a lot in a short period of time. She provides me with alternative ways of thinking about and dealing with things that I’ve struggled with for a while. She is a positive and active listener and I feel safe sharing my thoughts and feelings with her.

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
