What We Offer ...


INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Most often clients will work one-on-one with a counselor as they explore life issues that are troubling them. This is referred to as Individual Counseling.

The individual will normally meet with their professional counselor once a week for one hour. Depending upon the issues, the sessions may continue anywhere from 4 sessions, up to as many as 12,  as individuals may resolve issues and choose to go beyond to attain personal growth and satisfaction with their lives.

COUPLES' THERAPY

When a client is having difficulty in a relationship, a counselor may work with the couple together in sessions, referred to as Couple's Therapy.

Couples' therapy works to improve communication within the relationship and gives each member a new understanding of their partners experience, thus providing motivation for change, and developing a greater joy and love for one another. It doesn't matter if a couple is married, engaged, or even just dating. It is caring for the intimate relationship, also known as Marriage Counseling

GROUP THERAPY

Grace Counseling provides various types of counseling services,

based on the needs of the client. 

Group Therapy, while cost-effective, can also be the best option for a client who is facing issues common to others in the group. It is a means by which we can re-enact struggles and find resolutions yet to be discovered. It is actually a microcosm of life.

BOOK: "Walking In Grace"

Grace Counseling is a nonprofit corporation, 501c3, established in November of 2011.  In an effort to raise funds to support our missions, Suzanne Sebree, founder of Grace Counseling, published a book about God's Grace.

ALL proceeds from book sales go toward operations and quality control of Grace Counseling of Chesterfield.

~ Philosophy ~ 

"Life is a precious gift, but one that can be full of trials and seasons that we were not designed to handle on our own. I can relate, being a veteran, a mother of 4 girls, and a military wife. Thankfully, we have a Father who provides everything we need and renews our mercies every morning (Lamentations 22-24). With Him, all things are possible (Matt 19:26), and with His Grace, we can walk a little easier through this life together. I consider it an honor to counsel anyone who is courageous enough to take the necessary steps to help themselves improve their quality of life. "

"I believe in a client-centered approach that focuses on improving present relationships and circumstances, while taking into consideration any past or present issues that lead behavior. I believe that our most important needs are to be loved and to feel that we belong. All other basic needs can be satisfied by building strong connections with others. We cannot control how we feel, but we can control how we think and behave. My goal is to help individuals and couples take control of improving their own lives by learning to make better choices."
